How long on average should it take our property solicitor to conduct the conveyancing formalities on an apartment in a building we are intending to buy?


The conveyancing process can take anywhere from one month to 3 months based on a number of factors like the efficiency of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or re-negotiations following a survey.

In theory, there is no argument at all why a buyer shouldn't take care of he legal process unaided.

However, a conveyancing solicitor takes care of a long list of skilled tasks ranging from chasing replies to enquiries and collating and preparing contract and package most of which require training. Additionally solicitors firms always pay for professional indemnity insurance in order to protect you from any losses you encounter.
