How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold house because there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.
Varied factors, such as out-of-date contact information for the freeholder or incomplete managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.
Specialist leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold houses or flats can be seriously delayed.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see several leasehold-related documents. These could include three years' filed accounts for the property management and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually the result of the time required by the solicitor to get these documents together.
It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so the solicitor should commence this as soon as possible.
