How long does leasehold conveyancing take?
The vast majority of flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold home because there is more work involved.
Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete service charge accounts to absent freeholders.
Quittance's team of 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 the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Yes, that's correct, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property,compared to the sale of a freehold property.
The buyer's solicitor will want to see these documents, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. The time required by to source this information is the common cause of such delays.
It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent, so the solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
