How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
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. Buying leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold property as there is more to prepare and more technical complexity exists.
Varied factors, such as uncontactable landlords or slow delivery of managing agents' documents, can lead to serious delays.
Expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
