I am buying a leasehold property in Hornsea - what do I need to know?

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.

It can take a long time to gather this information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so the seller's solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found.
