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

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Purchasing a leasehold home can take weeks longer than freehold property because leasehold transactions involve more work.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to incomplete service charge accounts.

Expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Selling property in Morley

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Morley?

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat or house is quite a lot more complicated than for a freehold property.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Morley must undertake extra work, and this could include sourcing an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is recommended that the vendor contact a Morley conveyancing solicitor as soon as is practicable.

Will I need a conveyancing solicitor if I am remortgaging my Morley property?

Yes, you will need a remortgage conveyancing solicitor.

The base rate is now at 1.25% (June 2022). A proactive conveyancing solicitor in Morley should be able to complete the conveyancing quickly and get you onto your new rate without delay.
