Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

The buyer's conveyancer must review several leasehold-related documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by your lawyer to get these documents together.

Your solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, because this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
