Residential Conveyancing – Purchasing a property

When will my matter complete? 

It is always difficult to estimate when a matter will complete.  However, we anticipate the timescale for a property purchase is likely to be in the region of 8-10 weeks from receipt of instructions, any requested payment on account and satisfactory ID (and please note we need these in order to commence any work) and on the basis you promptly provide us with further instructions when required along with any other documentation/information that we may request/require as part of the transaction. If you instruct us, we will let you know if this timescale is likely to vary to a significant degree. We shall do our best to achieve your required timescale but our ability to do so may be affected by matters outside our control, such as delays in receiving required documentation, onward chains, information and/or responses from other parties.
