How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Buying leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than freehold property because there is more work involved.

Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or missing leasehold documents, can lead to serious delays.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold property usually takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and a current statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes your lawyer to source this information.

The seller's solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity, because these details can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
