How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Buying a leasehold home can take weeks longer than freehold property as there is more work involved and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Varied factors, such as an absent freeholder or slow delivery of managing agents' documents, can lead to serious delays.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Stapleford?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are not common) is quite a lot more difficult than for a more straightforward freehold house.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Stapleford will need to conduct additional work, such as getting the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy schedule.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold house or flat, It is strongly advised that the seller instruct a solicitor as soon as the decision is made to sell.
