How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Goole?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold flat can take weeks more to complete than freehold property because there is more to prepare.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to an unreachable freeholder.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold property can result in long delays.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see these documents, such as a current statement of service charges. The time needed by your lawyer to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

The solicitor should get this underway before a buyer has even been found, as the managing agent's information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent.
