How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property 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. Buying a leasehold flat typically takes longer than a freehold property as there are more parties involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to missing leasehold documents.

Leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

I am selling a leasehold property in Oxfordshire - what do I need to know?

The legal work for a leasehold flat is quite a lot more time-consuming than for a freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Oxfordshire will usually undertake additional work, which could include getting all relevant freeholder information, through to ascertaining if a license to assign is required.

In order to resolve any leasehold difficulties faster, It is strongly advised that the seller instruct a conveyancer as soon as the property is marketed, if not before.
