How long does conveyancing take?
There are no exact means to calculate how long the conveyancing process will take, as there are multiple factors that cause the time period to vary. Issues such as how complex the transaction is, how responsive each of the parties are and the efficiency of the conveyancing solicitors involved can have a huge effect on the speed at which the process is completed.
On average, conveyancing can take around 8-12 weeks to complete. However, if there are no complications and all parties are cooperating effectively, the process could be as short as 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, if there are issues such as a lengthy property chain, or other extraneous complications, it could take even longer. Our conveyancing solicitors will keep you updated along the way and provide realistic timescales so that you can manage your expectations and plan your move.
How much are conveyancing fees?
Calculating the conveyancing cost depends on several factors, such as the complexity of the transaction, which conveyancing solicitor you choose to go with, the type of property involved in the transaction and more.
There are also separate fees involved to be aware of, namely:
- Legal fees: This refers to the fee charged by the conveyancing solicitor for their services (handling the conveyancing process). These fees can vary depending on who you choose.
- Search fees: These are fees which are charged for the searches that are conducted on the property, such as local authority searches, water and drainage searches and environmental searches.
- Land Registry Fees: These fees are charged by the Land Registry for registering the transfer of ownership on the property.
