How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Yateley?
Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Buying leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home as more technical complexity exists.
Varied factors, such as absent freeholders or slow receipt of the managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.
Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?
Correct, it can take much longer to carry out the legal work to sell leasehold houses or flats when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will want to see several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.
It could take several weeks to collect this information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so the seller's solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed.
