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. Purchasing a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold property as there is greater complexity.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to uncontactable landlords.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats can be seriously delayed.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review these documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time needed by the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

Your lawyer should start this process even before a sale has been agreed, as this paperwork can take weeks to collect if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
