How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Frinton On Sea?

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Purchasing a leasehold home can take weeks longer than a freehold house as more technical complexity exists.

Examples of delays might include anything from missing leasehold documents to uncontactable landlords.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat can be seriously delayed.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include a current statement of service charges and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time required by your solicitor to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should commence this even before you have found a buyer.
