How long will my sale take?
Selling a leasehold property will typically complete within 8 to 10 weeks from the issuing of contract papers by us to the buyer’s solicitors. Whether or not this timescale is achievable will depend on a number of factors, some of which will be outside of our control, such as receipt of searches by the buyer, receipt of a mortgage offer by the buyer (if appropriate), receiving and replying to enquiries made by the buyer’s solicitor, and general co-operation by the buyer, the buyer’s solicitor and other parties in the chain.
