How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Redditch?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Buying a leasehold home will usually take more time than freehold property because there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to an unresponsive landlord.

Expert leasehold conveyancers complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

I am selling a leasehold property in Redditch - what do I need to know?

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat is much more protracted than for a freehold property.

Leasehold complexity involves additional legal work on the part of conveyancing solicitors in Redditch, which could include getting an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the service charge budget for the current year.

In order to resolve any leasehold delays faster, It is recommended that you instruct a Redditch conveyancing solicitor as early as possible.
