How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Tenterden?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold flat will usually take more time than a freehold home as leasehold transactions involve more work and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to incomplete service charge accounts.

Leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Tenterden?

The legal work for a leasehold flat is quite a lot more complicated than it is for a freehold home.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Tenterden will need to conduct additional legal work, including collating an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the lease.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is recommended that the vendor contact a property lawyer as soon as possible.
