How long will my conveyancing transaction take to complete?

The time taken from when we receive your initial instructions, until the completion of a standard residential sale or purchase will depend on a number of factors, but the average transaction takes between 10 and 12 weeks.

There are various factors which can affect how long it will take to complete your transaction. It can be quicker or slower, depending on certain factors such as the position of the parties in the chain, whether a mortgage is required to fund the purchase price, if there are any title defects to resolve prior to completion or if information or consent is required from third parties such as landlords or managing agents.

We will always discuss the likely timescales involved in your particular transaction, at the appropriate time.
