How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold property because there is more work involved and more technical complexity exists.
Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to absent freeholders.
Leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.
Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Yes, that's correct, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's conveyancer must review several leasehold-related documents, including management company information. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.
The seller's solicitor ought to start this process even before you have found a buyer, as this information could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent or they are slow to respond.
