What is the timescale of selling a property? Whilst there may be unavoidable delays, Attwells pride ourselves on transaction times that are four times faster than the national average.
Week 1: Instruct Attwells, pay money on account and complete the property information forms.
Week 2: Attwells issues the contract and ownership information to the buyer’s solicitors.
Week 3 to 6: Attwells agrees the contract and will help you satisfy all enquiries from the buyer’s solicitors.
Week 7 to 8: Moving date agreed and contracts exchanged – This makes the sale binding.
Week 9 to 11: You now have a guaranteed moving date. You can make arrangements and start packing. You will need to sign completion documents with Attwells. You will receive a statement showing the amount you will receive on completion.
Week 12: Complete. Move out and handover keys, any mortgage is redeemed and you should renew or make a will.
What are the timescales for exchange and completion once I return my documents to you?
Please note: Attwells Solicitors have produced this timescale as a guide only. Your transaction may take longer depending on your circumstances. A leasehold may take 4 plus weeks longer. For more information, please contact your conveyancer. www.attwells.com.
