How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Ripley?
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Buying a leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold house as the landlord or managing agent are involved.
Causes of numerous delays can range from missing leasehold documents to an absent freeholder.
Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Yes, it can take considerably longer to conduct the conveyancing to sell a leasehold house or flat,compared to the sale of a freehold property.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will want to see these documents. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.
Your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible, because this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
Will I need a conveyancing solicitor if I am remortgaging my Ripley property?
The official UK base rate is currently set at 0.1% (Jan 2021). A good Ripley remortgage solicitor should be able to complete the conveyancing quickly and get you onto your new rate without delay.
