How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. The legal work for a leasehold home typically takes longer than a freehold home as there are more parties involved.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to absent freeholders.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat typically takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see several leasehold-related documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Typically, delays are due to the time needed by your lawyer to gather this paperwork.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your solicitor ought to start this process even before you have found a buyer.
