How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Pinner?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold home will usually take more time than freehold property because there is more work involved.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to an unresponsive landlord.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Correct, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on leasehold properties, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's conveyancer must review this leasehold-related paperwork, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. The time it takes to get these documents together is the common cause of such delays.

It can take a long time to gather this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should commence this as soon as possible.
