How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Ruislip?
Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold house because there is more work involved and there are more parties involved.
Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.
Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?
Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling leasehold houses or flats can result in long delays.
The buyer's conveyancer must review this leasehold-related paperwork, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information is commonly the source of delays.
It can take weeks to collect this information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so the seller's solicitor should commence this even before a sale has been agreed.
