How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. The legal work for a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold property as leasehold transactions involve more work and more technical complexity exists.

Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to uncontactable landlords.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats typically takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see several leasehold-related documents. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and management company information. The time it takes your solicitor to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

It could take several weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed.
