Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's solicitor must review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include a current statement of service charges and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time needed by the solicitor to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so the solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found.
