How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost all flats are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Purchasing a leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold home as more technical complexity exists.
Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unreachable freeholder.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Lincolnshire must undertake additional work, which could include sourcing an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy schedule.
