How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Malton?

Almost all flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold property because there is more to prepare and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to an unresponsive landlord.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, it can take much longer to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold house or flat when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, including management company information. The time needed by your lawyer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

Your solicitor ought to start this process before a buyer has even been found, because the managing agent's information could take several weeks to collect if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
