Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling leasehold houses or flats can be seriously delayed.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review several leasehold-related documents, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. The time needed by to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

The solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found, as this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property.
