Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold property can be seriously delayed.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review several leasehold-related documents. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time required by to get these documents together.

Your solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, because the managing agent's information can take a long time to gather if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
