How long does it take?
The length of time a conveyancing transaction takes will depend on a number of factors, including the type of transaction. For a remortgage, the average process takes about 5 weeks to complete. For a sale or purchase, the average time is between 6 – 12 weeks. That is in part because a sale or purchase depends very much on the other parties in the chain, and how quickly they are able to proceed. For example, there could be a long chain where one end of the chain is ready to complete but the other end does not have mortgage finance in place. The chain would not be able to complete until all the parties in it were in a position to do so.
