How long will my property purchase take?
How long it will take from your offer being accepted until you can move in to your house will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 6 and 10 weeks. It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. If, for example, you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, perhaps so long as 3 and 6 months. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.
