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

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold home can take weeks longer than a freehold house as more technical complexity exists.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from uncontactable landlords to incomplete service charge accounts.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer must review this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so your lawyer should start this process as soon as possible.
