How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Hebburn?

Almost all flats are leasehold. The legal work for a leasehold flat typically takes longer than a freehold home as there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or incomplete managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on leasehold properties,compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, including management company information. The time needed by your lawyer to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

Your lawyer should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed, because these details can take a long time to gather if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
