Ruban Selvanayagam of Property Solvers said: "The property market is certainly in a different place relative to a couple of years ago.

"The continued pressures on the mortgage sector and buyers' ability to secure the right kind of finance has resulted in delays with sales completing."

"Combined with the recognised 'snail pace' nature of the conveyancing process, it's likely that these trends are likely to remain for some time."
