How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold house because there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Varied factors, such as out-of-date contact information for the freeholder or incomplete managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.

Specialist leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
