How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Hyde?
Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold home because there is more work involved.
Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to missing leasehold documents.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors 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, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.
The buyer's conveyancer will need to review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.
Your conveyancing solicitor should start this process even before you have found a buyer, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
