Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold home typically takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review these documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes to gather this paperwork.

The solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, as this information could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent.
