Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold property because there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.
Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to an unreachable freeholder.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related issues sooner, It is strongly advised that you instruct a property lawyer as early in the process as possible, preferably before putting the property on the market.
