How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Marple?
Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold home typically takes longer than a freehold home because leasehold transactions involve more work.
Examples of delays might include anything from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to uncontactable landlords.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Yes, that's correct, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on leasehold properties, compared to freehold conveyancing.
The buyer's solicitor will need to review several leasehold-related documents, such as details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the solicitor to gather this paperwork.
It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so the seller's solicitor should commence this even before a sale has been agreed.
