What average time will it take my designated lawyer to handle all of the conveyancing formalities on a semi detached Victorian property we are intending to buy?


It can take anywhere between around a month and twelve weeks, which can be hampered by a number of factors e.g. the speed of the vendors lawyer, or whether your solicitor has to act for your lender. Our chosen property lawyers are extremely proactive and endeavour towards completing as speedily as possible.


Do we need to employ the solicitor used by our estate agent?


An agent will be able to pressure a law firm they refer a lot of work to, and can therefore to reduce delays in the conveyancing process. These referrals need to be considered carefully, as an agent may select the firm which pays to the largest referral fee, not a firm with local expertise and a solid reputation.
