How long does a Transfer of Ownership take?
A Transfer of Ownership is effectively conveyancing, although there isn’t a chain involved. The process includes searches, land registry checks, and reviewing the transfer documents. According to a recent article published by Rightmove conveyancing in 2022 is taking 150 days. This is from when a property is sold subject to contract up until the point of moving home. This is 66 days longer than in 2019 when it took 8-12 weeks, but this timeframe is still quoted by most solicitors today.
However, our conveyancing median in 2022 is 126 days from the day you instruct us to the day you move home. As a result, by instructing Attwells you could move home faster.
