How long does leasehold conveyancing take?
Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Purchasing a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold property as there is greater complexity.
Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to uncontactable landlords.
Our specialist leasehold solicitor team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat can be seriously delayed.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time required by your lawyer to source this information is commonly the source of delays.
It could take several weeks to collect this information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer should get this underway as soon as possible.
