Selling property in Evesham

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer must review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time required by your lawyer to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

The solicitor should start this process even before you have found a buyer, because the managing agent's information can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent or they are slow to respond.
