The stages involved in the purchase of a residential property depend upon the circumstances of the transaction.  The following is a brief list of the key stages involved in a purchase:

  • Taking your instructions and providing you with initial advice
  • Checking that your finances are in place to fund the purchase and contacting the lender’s solicitors (if separately represented)
  • Receiving and advising you on the contract documentation
  • Carrying out searches
  • Obtaining any relevant planning permissions or other documents revealed in the local search
  • Making any necessary enquiries of the seller’s solicitors
  • Reviewing the conditions of your mortgage offer
  • Providing you with advice on all documents and information received
  • Providing you with the documents required for signature to include the Contract, Mortgage Deed, etc.
  • Agreeing a completion date – this will be the date on which you complete your purchase
  • Exchanging contracts and notifying you that this has happened
  • Carrying out pre-completion searches at the Land Registry
  • Arranging for all funds required from your lender and from you to be requested
  • Completing the purchase on the completion date
  • Dealing with the submission of the Land Transaction Return to HMRC and paying the Stamp Duty Land Tax due
  • Serving notice of transfer/charge on the managing agents/landlord to advise them that you are the new owner
  • Dealing with the application for registration at the Land Registry

 

How long the process takes from your offer being accepted until the date that you can move into your new home will depend on a number of factors; even if your own transaction is straightforward, if you are in a chain you could find that you have to wait for other parties in the chain to be ready.  It is therefore impossible to say with any degree of certainty exactly how long your transaction will take, but we will do all we can to make sure that it completes as quickly as possible.  As a rough guideline, assuming no particular issues arise, the average timescale would be somewhere in the region of two to three months. If you would like a more detailed projection please feel free to give one of our conveyancers a call so that they can talk through your own particular circumstances with you.
