How long does leasehold conveyancing 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. The legal work for a leasehold home typically takes longer than a freehold house because leasehold transactions involve more work.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

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

The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see these documents, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. The time needed by your solicitor to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

Your conveyancing solicitor should start this process at the earliest opportunity, because this information could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
