Property Law

Urban Neighbourhood


1. Memorandum of Sale issued by the estate agent (unless sale by private treaty). 

2. Seller's solicitor sends contract papers to Buyer's solicitor.

3. Buyer performs searches/survey and raises enquiries. 

4. Seller's solicitor replies to enquiries.

5. Buyer's solicitor reports to buyer; documents and funds are prepared for completion.

6. Exchange of contracts; this is the binding agreement to sell and buy the property and fixes the completion date, usually a week or two later.

7. Completion; money and keys change hands.

8. Buyer's solicitor completes registration. 

The whole process can take anything from 6 weeks to 6 months (or more); it depends on the property, the parties, the funding of the transaction, whether there is a chain of transactions or not, etc; we cannot offer any guarantees on timing but we do offer a bespoke personal service and will move at the pace which suits you.  

Always give our name to your estate agent at the outset; this will save duplication of fees for Anti-Money Laundering and ID checks.
