Local information

Thurrock is an Essex borough, which includes the districts of Grays and Tilbury. Its good communication links to central London (journey times from Grays to Fenchuch St are only 35 minutes) have made it popular with commuters looking for affordable property.

Another key factor in the attractiveness of the district to families is the amount of green space - with more than half the borough designated as green belt.

Thurrock is already an important international trade centre and has been identified as part of the Thames Gateway redevelopment zone creating further opportunities for industrial and commercial development.

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

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold property as the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unreachable freeholder to slow delivery of managing agents' documents.

Expert leasehold conveyancers handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

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

The legal work for a leasehold flat or house is a great deal more specialised than for a freehold property.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Thurrock will usually undertake additional legal work. This can involve getting all relevant freeholder information, through to insurance details.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related problems sooner, It is strongly advised that the seller instruct a lawyer as early in the process as possible, preferably before putting the property on the market.
