How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold home because there is more to prepare and there are more parties involved.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete service charge accounts to uncontactable landlords.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Waterlooville?

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat or house is significantly more involved than for a more straightforward freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Waterlooville will usually undertake extra work, for example requesting all relevant freeholder information, through to a copy of the lease.

In order to resolve any leasehold delays faster, It is highly recommended that the vendor contact a Waterlooville conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible.
