How long will it all take?

If the property is empty and the buyer does not require a mortgage, a sale or purchase can all be completed in a few days but this is very unusual. However it is more likely that a mortgage will be required and there will be a chain of transactions and if that is the case it will usually take 4-6 weeks to exchange contracts and then another 2-4 weeks between exchange of contracts and completion making a total of 6-10 weeks from start to finish. We always do all that we can to progress your transaction as quickly as possible but as many things are out of our control we cannot give any guarantee about this and you should not believe anyone else who does!
