Property Law

Urban Neighbourhood

Stages/Timescales:​

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.
