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

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Purchasing a leasehold property can take weeks longer than freehold property because there is more work involved and there are more parties involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from missing leasehold documents to absent freeholders.

Expert leasehold conveyancers handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor must review several leasehold-related documents, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. The time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

Your solicitor ought to start this process even before you have found a buyer, as these details can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
