How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold flat can take weeks more to complete than freehold property because there is more to prepare and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unresponsive landlord.

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

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for leasehold properties can take much longer.

The buyer's solicitor must review this leasehold-related paperwork, like management company information and an up-to-date statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes your lawyer to get these documents together.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
