TIMESCALES

How long it will take from you accepting an offer until you can complete on your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8-10 weeks from when contract papers are issued.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on parties in the chain. For example, if your buyer is a first-time buyer and you are selling a freehold property and you are not buying on, it could take 4-6 weeks from when contract papers are issued. However, if your buyer is also selling and you are selling a leasehold flat, this can take significantly longer, between 16-20 weeks.

STAGES OF THE PROCESS

The precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. Below are some key stages:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Obtain title documents from Land Registry and ensure you are the legal owner
  • Obtain a redemption statement from your current lender (if applicable)
  • Prepare and issue contract documents
  • Deal with any enquiries raised by the buyer’s solicitors
  • Obtain further planning documentation if required
  • Review and approve the Draft Transfer
  • Give you advice on all documents and information received
  • Send final contract to you for signature
  • Agree completion date (date from which you no longer own the property)
  • Prepare bill and completion statement and forward to you in advance of Exchange and Completion
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
  • Complete purchase
