Most conveyancing transactions take on average 10 to 12 weeks. Some are quicker while some can take longer. The actual time will depend on several factors, for example the number of people in the conveyancing chain or the length of time taken to arrange mortgage finance.
We ask that you let us know if you have any specific requirements for a moving date and we will do our best to meet that date. However, please bear in mind that it may not always be possible as the date can only be agreed once everyone in the chain is ready.
Did you know that your chosen conveyancing solicitors do not need to be in the same area that you are moving to or from.
Our team of highly experienced conveyancers can act for you no matter where you are located anywhere in the country.
