How long will my house purchase take?

How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move into your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8 to 10 weeks.

It can be quicker or longer, depending on the number of parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first-time buyer, purchasing a new build property with a mortgage offer in place, it could take 6 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 3 to 4 months. In such a situation additional charges would apply.

Stages of the process

The precise stages involved in the purchase of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, below we have suggested some key stages that you may wish to include:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Check finances are in place to fund purchase and contact lender’s solicitors if needed
  • Receive and advise on contract documents
  • Carry out searches
  • Obtain further planning documentation if required
  • Make any necessary enquiries of seller’s solicitor
  • Give you advice on all documents and information received
  • Go through the conditions of the mortgage offer with you
  • Send final Report to you with the contract for signature
  • Agree the completion date (date from which you own the property) with the sellers’ solicitor
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
  • Arrange for all monies needed to be received from the lender and you
  • Complete purchase
  • Deal with payment of Stamp Duty/Land Tax
  • Deal with application for registration at Land Registry

The figures quoted using our online calculator assume a straightforward transaction without unforeseen complexity or issues. If the matter becomes complex then there will be an additional fee, examples of which include (but are not limited to):

  • Where your mortgage lender instructs its own solicitor
  • Where your lease purchase includes the purchase of a share of the freehold
  • Where a lease extension is involved
  • Where freeholder consent for any reason may be required
  • Where there is a perceived defect in title
  • If leasehold, that it is the transfer of an existing lease and not the grant of a new lease
  • Shared ownership transactions
  • Missing or absentee landlords
  • Where a transaction is required to be expedited
  • Contract races
  • Lock out/exclusivity agreements

Obviously all cases are different and we will try our best to inform you as soon as we become aware of any feature that might have an impact on the quoted fee.
