Selling property in Baildon

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for leasehold houses or flats can result in long delays.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. The time required by your lawyer to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.
