How long does leasehold conveyancing take in New Milton?
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The conveyancing for leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than freehold property as there is more work involved and there are more parties involved.
Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an absent freeholder to incomplete managing agent information.
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, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold properties when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's conveyancer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.
Your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer, because these details can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
