Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for leasehold properties typically takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see these documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time it takes your lawyer to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

Your solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, because these details can take a long time to gather if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
