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

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home as leasehold transactions involve more work and there are more parties involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an absent freeholder to incomplete managing agent information.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold properties can take much longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by your solicitor to gather this paperwork.

It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond, so the solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed.
