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.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Lincolnshire?

The legal work for a leasehold flat is quite a lot more difficult than for a freehold house.

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.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is highly recommended that the seller instruct a conveyancer as soon as the decision is made to sell.
