How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing leasehold property can take weeks longer than freehold property because leasehold transactions involve more work and the landlord or managing agent are involved.
Varied factors, such as absent freeholders or slow delivery of managing agents' documents, can lead to serious delays.
Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.
