How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Buying a leasehold home can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home because there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unresponsive landlord to slow delivery of managing agents' documents.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.

Your conveyancing solicitor should start this process even before you have found a buyer, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
