How Long Will My Sale Take?

How long it will take from you accepting an offer until you move out of your property will depend on a number of factors, many out of our control- especially where there is a chain. The average process takes between 6-8 weeks (although it is currently often longer due to Covid).

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the number of parties in the chain and at what stage they are in the conveyancing process. For example, at the bottom of the chain is a first-time buyer who is struggling to obtain a mortgage offer and this delays the transaction. Or perhaps a buyer’s survey has come back with adverse results which leads to negotiations over the purchase price between the conveyancers or estate agents.

What Services Are Included In The Fixed Fee and What Are The Key Stages of The Sale Process?

The precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, below we have listed some key stages:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Send out a fittings and contents form and property information form(s) for completion. If the property is leasehold, additional information will be required.
  • Obtain official copies of the title register and any other relevant title documents from the Land Registry
  • Prepare draft contract and supporting contract documentation and send to the buyer’s conveyancer.
  • Where relevant, obtain management information from the landlord and send to buyer’s conveyancer
  • Request mortgage redemption figures from lender
  • Answer pre-contract enquiries raised by the buyer’s conveyancer.
  • Agree completion date
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
  • Complete sale
  • Deal with payment of the outstanding mortgage
  • Deal with payment of estate agents
  • Send title deeds and transfer deed to the buyer’s conveyancer
  • Deal with payment of any remaining balance back to you
