How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The legal work for a leasehold home can take weeks more to complete than a freehold property because there is more to prepare.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete service charge accounts to an unreachable freeholder.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat is significantly more involved compared to a freehold house.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Thame must undertake additional tasks, including obtaining an up-to-date service charge statement, through to details of planned major works.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related difficulties sooner, It is highly recommended that the vendor contact a property lawyer as soon as possible.
