Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold house as the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unreachable freeholder.

Leasehold specialists look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold properties usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork, like management company information and a current statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes your lawyer to source this information.

Your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway before a buyer has even been found, because this paperwork can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord.
