How much does an average property cost in Wrexham?

Is conveyancing in Wrexham slower when buying a leasehold property?
Leasehold and freehold are the two popular types of property tenure in England and Wales. But leasehold can complicate conveyancing in the county of Wrexham because the land is not owned by the property seller but by the freeholder or landowner. We've created an informative guide to buying leasehold to tell you all you need to know. When buying property in Wrexham, a conveyancing solicitor will have to make specific enquiries about a leasehold home. Any delay in the response to these enquiries can potentially slow down the transaction.
