Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The legal work for selling a leasehold home can be seriously delayed.

The buyer's conveyancer must review several leasehold-related documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to gather this paperwork is the common cause of such delays.

It could take several weeks to collect these details if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so your solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
