How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Purchasing a leasehold flat will usually take more time than a freehold property because there is more work involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to an absent freeholder.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for leasehold houses or flats usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review these documents. These could include three years' filed accounts for the property management and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes the solicitor to source this information.

Your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer, because this paperwork can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
