Should I be wary of buying a leasehold house?

Should I buy a property with a short lease?

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

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

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by the seller's conveyancer to source this information.

It can take a long time to gather this information if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found.
