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

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold property as there is more work involved and there is greater complexity.

Varied factors, such as out-of-date contact information for the freeholder or incomplete service charge accounts, can lead to serious delays.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat typically takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see these documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. The time needed by the seller's conveyancer to source this information is commonly the source of delays.

It can take weeks to collect these details if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so the solicitor should commence this at the earliest opportunity.
