Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?
Correct, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on leasehold properties,compared to the sale of a freehold property.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see several leasehold-related documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information is the common cause of such delays.
