How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Llandrindod Wells?

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. The conveyancing for a leasehold home will usually take more time than a freehold property because there is more work involved.

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

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

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much more time to complete the legal work on a leasehold property, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's solicitor must review several leasehold-related documents. These could include three years' filed accounts for the property management and management company information. Delays are usually caused by the time needed by the solicitor to gather this paperwork.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so your solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found.
