How long does conveyancing take?

Typically, Attwells complete in 12 – 16 weeks

At Attwells we use technology to move your conveyancing file on quickly.

Our conveyancers will also pick up the phone or send an email when requesting more information. This also speeds up the conveyancing process.

Of course, for clients who prefer a more traditional approach, we are more than happy to cater to your needs. We know not everyone has an email address.

What happens during conveyancing?

Accepting The Quote – Simply click the accept button within your email or agree the fee over the phone.

Paying Money Onto Your Account – We require £25 on account to enable us to carry out our ID checks on you. Payments can be made online, 24/7. The £25 will be taken off your final bill.

Welcome Pack – Your conveyancer will send you a welcome email with a few basic documents. These can be filled in and signed using your phone.

Mortgage Valuations – Your mortgage provider will require a valuation of the property you wish to buy. The valuation is designed to confirm the property you are buying is worth the same or more than the value of your mortgage.

Send Reports – Everything outlined above (mortgage details, searches and draft contract) is reported to you. Our reports are written to be simple to read. However, if you prefer your conveyancer can talk you through your report. Below, is a list of frequently asked questions.

Signing Your Contract – Once you are happy after reading all the paperwork your conveyancer will send you your contract to sign. At this point, we will ask you for your 10% deposit.

Searches – Searches outlines any possible issues with the property and serves as reassurance for both you and your lender that the property is in good order. Attwells would always recommend cash buyers have searches carried out too.
Exchange Date – This is the moment everyone loves! It is when your moving date is confirmed.
Completion – Prior to completion we will receive your statement of funds required. Your funds will then be requested from your mortgage lender. Once we have your funds the keys will be released and you can move into your new home. Congratulations!
