Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold home can result in long delays.

The buyer's solicitor must review this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time required by to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

Your lawyer should get this underway before a buyer has even been found, because this information can take a long time to gather if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
