Examples of delays might include anything from missing leasehold documents to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.
Specialist leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see these documents. These could include three years' filed accounts for the property management and management company information. Typically, delays are due to the time needed by the solicitor to get these documents together.
