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.

Your solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, as this paperwork can take a long time to gather if the managing agent or landlord is slow or difficult to contact.
