How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Heanor?

Almost all flats are leasehold. Buying a leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than a freehold property as more technical complexity exists.

Causes of numerous delays can range from missing leasehold documents to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, it can take much more time to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold house or flat, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's solicitor must review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time it takes the solicitor to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

Your lawyer should commence this before a buyer has even been found, as this information could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
