How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for a leasehold home typically takes longer than a freehold property as there is greater complexity.
Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to an absent freeholder.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.
Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats can be seriously delayed.
The buyer's solicitor must review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time needed by your lawyer to gather this paperwork is the common cause of such delays.
It can take a long time to gather this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so your solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed.
Will I need a conveyancing solicitor if I am remortgaging my Ivybridge property?
Yes you will need a solicitor to handle the legal side of the remortgage.
The official UK base rate is currently set at 0.1% (Apr 2021). A proactive conveyancing solicitor in Ivybridge will complete the conveyancing process quickly and get you into your new rate.
