How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold house because there is more work involved and there is greater complexity.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from absent freeholders to missing leasehold documents.

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

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Great Harwood?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat or house is quite a lot more specialised than it is for a freehold home.

Leasehold complexity involves extra work on the part of conveyancing solicitors in Great Harwood, including sourcing the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to a copy of the buildings insurance for the common parts.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is recommended that you instruct a property lawyer as early in the process as possible, and potentially before marketing the property,.
