The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see several leasehold-related documents, like management company information and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. The time it takes the solicitor to gather this paperwork is the common cause of such delays.
The solicitor should start this process even before a sale has been agreed, as this information can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
