How long will my house sale and/or purchase take?

Here at Cox Minhas we will work to the timescales you set us as far as possible. Being a small firm allows us to be flexible and prioritise matters that are deemed urgent. An average conveyancing transaction takes approximately 12 weeks. However it can take a longer or shorter period depending on the complexity of the matter, the number of parties in the chain and the property market generally. We endeavour to keep you updated on the progress of your matter and advise you throughout of the likely timescales so that you can best prepare for your move
