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

Almost all flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for leasehold property can take weeks longer than a 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 incomplete managing agent information to an unresponsive landlord.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Correct, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on a leasehold house or flat when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, such as details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Delays are usually caused by the time needed by the solicitor to source this information.

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 commence this at the earliest opportunity.
