How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost all flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold home as there are more parties involved.

Varied factors, such as absent freeholders or slow delivery of managing agents' documents, can lead to serious delays.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Correct, it can take much more time to complete the legal work on a leasehold house or flat,compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review several leasehold-related documents, such as a current statement of service charges. The time needed by the seller's conveyancer to gather this paperwork is usually the cause of these delays.

Your lawyer should start this process even before a sale has been agreed, as this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
