How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. The legal work for a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold house as there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Varied factors, such as an absent freeholder or slow receipt of the managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.

Expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.

Your solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
