How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold house because there is more to prepare.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, it can take much longer to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold house or flat, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Typically, delays are due to the time required by your lawyer to get these documents together.

The solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, as this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
