Is conveyancing in Ceredigion slower when buying a leasehold property?

For homeowners in Wales, there are two main types of property tenure: leasehold and freehold. Leaseholders own a property only, not the land it stands, which remains in the ownership of the landowner or freeholder. The land is instead leased to the property owner, usually on a long-term basis that can last for decades and even centuries. Buying a leasehold property can occasionally be a complicated process, especially if the lease has less than 30 years to run. For properties of this type in Ceredigion, conveyancing may take a little longer. Read more about buying leasehold in our detailed guide. When you instruct a Ceredigion conveyancing solicitor through Homeward Legal, they will ask about the property's tenure and immediately ask for information on the lease from the freeholder.
