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.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Hessle?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold property is significantly more specialised than for a freehold property.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Hessle must carry out additional legal work. This can involve getting all relevant freeholder information, through to details of any disputes with the current leaseholder.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related problems sooner, It is strongly advised that the vendor contact a Hessle conveyancing solicitor as soon as an estate agent is chosen.
