How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost all flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Buying a leasehold flat can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home as there is more to prepare and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to incomplete service charge accounts.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.
