How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The legal work for a leasehold home can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home because there is more to prepare.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an absent freeholder to incomplete managing agent information.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

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

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are uncommon) is much more specialised than it is for a freehold home.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Yate must undertake additional work. This can involve getting the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to details of any disputes with the current leaseholder.

In order to resolve any leasehold delays faster, It is recommended that the vendor contact a property lawyer as soon as the decision is made to sell.
