Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
