Frequently asked questions

How long will my house purchase take?

How long it will take to complete purchase/sales of a property will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 4 and 10 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first-time buyer, purchasing a new build property, it could take 4 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 3 and 6 months. In such a situation, additional charges would apply.
