Time Scales

The timescale depend on factors such as (but not limited to):

  • The number of parties in the chain
  • Whether the buyer has a mortgage in place
  • Whether the buyer requests lease extension for a leasehold property
  • Whether the searches flag up any issues
  • Whether buyer’s survey reveals any issues

A typical transaction will take between 8 – 12 weeks, however if any of the above factors apply, your sale could take longer. We will keep you updated as to our progress throughout the transaction.

If exchange and/or completion is required more quickly than the usual time frame we will make an additional charge for expediting the matter. This will be based upon the speed required.

Key Milestones

The milestones will vary according to individual circumstances but are likely to include:

  • Confirming your initial instructions and verifying your identity
  • Considering your title to the Property
  • Drafting and agreeing the terms of the contract for sale
  • Supplying information to the Buyer’s solicitor
  • Obtaining a redemption statement from your mortgage lender (if applicable)
  • Answering pre-contract enquiries raised by the Buyer’s solicitors
  • Agreeing the terms of the deed that will transfer ownership of the property
  • Sending the contract and transfer deed to you for signature
  • Exchanging contracts once everyone is ready and a completion date agreed
  • On the completion date:
    • Receiving the purchase price from the Buyer’s solicitor
    • Redeeming your mortgage(s) (if applicable)
    • Paying the estate agents from the proceeds of sale (if applicable)
    • Distributing the net proceeds of sale to you

Exclusions

We do not undertake tax advice.

Our fixed fees assume that:

  • No complications or unforeseen matters arise during the transaction. This includes, but is not limited to, (i) a defect in title which require remedying prior to completion and (ii) the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction such as a deed of variation
  • The entire property is included in the sale and this is not a “sale of part”
  • A leasehold sale is an assignment of an existing lease and not the grant of a new lease
  • All parties to the transaction are co-operative and do not cause unreasonable delay
  • No indemnity policies are required.Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required
