How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost all flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Buying a leasehold flat can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home as there is more to prepare and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to incomplete service charge accounts.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold properties typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time needed by your lawyer to source this information is commonly the source of delays.

Your conveyancing solicitor should commence this even before a sale has been agreed, because this paperwork can take weeks to collect if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
