Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the legal work to sell leasehold properties, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include three years' filed accounts for the property management and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by your solicitor to source this information.

Your conveyancing solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found, because this paperwork can take weeks to collect if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
