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

Almost all flats are leasehold. Purchasing leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold home because there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.

Causes of numerous delays can range from slow receipt of the managing agent information to an unresponsive landlord.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Correct, it can take much longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold home, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, such as a current statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time required by the seller's conveyancer to gather this paperwork.

It can take weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so your solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible.
