How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Marlow?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold home will usually take more time than a freehold house as there is more work involved and more technical complexity exists.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to slow delivery of managing agents' documents.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold properties usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will need to review these documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. The time required by your solicitor to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer ought to start this process before a buyer has even been found.
