Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes to gather this paperwork.

It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent, so the solicitor should start this process as soon as possible.
