How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold home can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home as there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.

Causes of numerous delays can range from slow receipt of the managing agent information to uncontactable landlords.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold house or flat when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor must review these documents, such as a current statement of service charges. The time required by your lawyer to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

Your conveyancing solicitor should commence this even before you have found a buyer, because these details can take a long time to gather if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
