The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are uncommon) is quite a lot more involved than for a more straightforward freehold house.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold house or flat, It is strongly advised that the vendor contact a solicitor as soon as the property is marketed, if not before.
