How long does leasehold conveyancing 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 can take weeks longer than a freehold property as leasehold transactions involve more work and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or incomplete service charge accounts, can lead to serious delays.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
