How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
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. The conveyancing for a leasehold flat typically takes longer than freehold property as the landlord or managing agent are involved.
Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or incomplete managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.
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.
Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Prestatyn?
The legal work for a leasehold flat or house is significantly more specialised than it is for a freehold home.
The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Prestatyn must undertake extra work, for example requesting an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the lease.
To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold house or flat, It is recommended that you instruct a Prestatyn conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible.
