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. The conveyancing for a leasehold home will usually take more time than a freehold property because there is more work involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to an unreachable freeholder.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related problems sooner, It is recommended that the seller instruct a conveyancer as soon as possible, and potentially before going on the market,.
