Is conveyancing in Caerphilly slower when buying a leasehold property?

With around four million leasehold properties across England and Wales, this popular property tenure can bring an added complication to conveyancing in Caerphilly. In leasehold, a homeowner only owns the property itself but not the land on which it stands. Instead this land is leased for a specific period, often decades. When selling, the buyer must be certain of their legal rights and of how long they may be entitled to live in their new home. When instructed for Caerphilly conveyancing for leasehold, a solicitor will ask the freeholder for a leasehold information pack. Any delay in providing that information can slow up the purchase transaction. Read more in our guide to buying leasehold.
