How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Shropshire?

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Yes, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on a leasehold property,compared to the sale of a freehold property.
The buyer's solicitor must review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time needed by to get these documents together is the common cause of such delays.
It can take a long time to gather the managing agent's information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so the solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found.
