How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Liversedge?

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Buying a leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold property as there are more parties involved.

Varied factors, such as absent freeholders or missing leasehold documents, can lead to serious delays.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much longer to conduct the conveyancing to sell a leasehold home,compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The buyer's conveyancer must review these documents, such as details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Delays are usually caused by the time needed by the solicitor to get these documents together.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so your lawyer should start this process as soon as possible.
