Timescales in conveyancing transactions
We try to adhere to the following timescales, but at times the processes in a transaction are beyond our control because we are dealing with other solicitors and their clients, and such factors as search authorities and the need to consider issues.
For an off-plan purchase where we are recommended by the developer and/or the selling agents, we would hope to exchange within 4 weeks of receipt of the contract and completion will be in accordance with the guidelines provided for by the Developer and as agreed in the contract.
For second hand purchases, we would hope to exchange at the latest within 6 weeks, with completion 4 weeks thereafter.
For assignment transactions, we would, where acting on a purchase, to exchange within 8 weeks with completion 4 weeks thereafter.
On assignment sales we would hope to exchange within 6 weeks, with completion 4 weeks thereafter.
With re-mortgages, we would hope to draw down within 6-8 weeks.
In connection with other transactions we would give you an indication at the commencement as to how long we think the various stages would be.
The above is purely guidance and we will specify the timeframe appropriate to your matter in your client care letter and update you throughout the transaction.
