How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Hoylake?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Buying leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold home as the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.
