How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Lutterworth?
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold property because there is more work involved.
Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or incomplete service charge accounts, can lead to serious delays.
Expert leasehold conveyancers look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to conduct the conveyancing to sell a leasehold house or flat when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's conveyancer will want to see these documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.
The seller's solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, because this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
