How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost all flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold property because leasehold transactions involve more work and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.
Varied factors, such as an unreachable freeholder or missing leasehold documents, can lead to serious delays.
Leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

The seller's solicitor should commence this even before a sale has been agreed, because these details could take several weeks to collect if the managing agent or landlord is slow or difficult to contact.
