How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Warlingham?
Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The legal work for leasehold property can take weeks longer than freehold property because there is more to prepare.
Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or missing leasehold documents, can lead to serious delays.
Our expert leasehold conveyancing team 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 conveyancing for selling a leasehold property can be seriously delayed.
The buyer's conveyancer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, like management company information and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. The time required by your lawyer to source this information is commonly the source of delays.
It can take a long time to gather the managing agent's information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your conveyancing solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found.
