How Long Will Conveyancing Take?
Although the timescales we offer are there for guidance purposes our team will aim to complete within that time, it is worth noting that with any transaction we are also reliant on third parties such buyers/sellers and the mortgage lender.
A sale or purchase should normally be completed within 4-12 weeks from the point of instruction.
