How long will the process take?

The timings can vary for how long a property transaction can take, however generally speaking a standard freehold residential purchase or sale takes between 4 – 8 weeks. This can be faster or slower depending on the parties in a chain and depending on other factors, including whether you are purchasing with a mortgage. A re-mortgage can be much faster, and completed within a few days if all parties are wanting to complete quickly. Alternatively, the purchase of a leasehold property that involves a management company who have to provide information/documents and/or that requires a lease extension can take several months.

Typical process for the purchase of a residential property:
  • We will take your instructions and provide you with initial advice
  • Review the mortgage offer from your lender (if applicable)
  • Receive a draft contract and supporting documents from the seller’s solicitors to approve
  • Upon receipt of £350 from you we will order searches (local, drainage and environmental to begin with)
  • Raise enquiries with the seller’s solicitor and request further documents such as planning Send you a letter of advice in relation to your mortgage offer
  • Report to you to advise you on all legal aspects of the property you are purchasing
  • Send you the contract, transfer, SDLT form (if applicable) and any other relevant documents to sign in readiness for exchange of contracts (this can be done in a meeting if preferred)
  • Agree a completion date and exchange contracts with the seller’s solicitor
  • Send you a Completion Statement so you may send to us the deposit monies or remainder balance plus any SDLT payable to complete the purchase
  • Report to the lender so they can pay the mortgage funds to us in time for completion
