How long will my house 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 6-12 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer, purchasing a new build property which is ready to move into, with a mortgage in principle, it could take as little as 4 weeks. However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 3 and 6 months. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.

Stages of the process of a purchase

The precise stages involved in the purchase of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, below we have suggested some key stages that you may wish to include:

  • Taking your initial instructions and providing you with initial advice such as obtaining a survey
  • Liaising with your mortgage lender and/or broker to ensure finances are in place to fund your purchase
  • Receiving and advising you on contract documents
  • Carrying out searches
  • Obtaining further planning documentation if required
  • Making any necessary enquiries of seller’s solicitor
  • Providing you with advice on all documents and information received
  • Going through conditions of mortgage offer with you
  • Advising you on joint ownership if there is more than one person buying
  • Meeting with you to sign the final Contract documents
  • Agreeing the completion date (date from which you own the property)
  • Exchanging contracts (which makes the transaction legally binding) and notifying you when this has happened
  • Arranging for all monies needed to be received from lender and you
  • Completing your purchase
  • Dealing with payment of Stamp Duty/Land Tax
  • Dealing with application for registration at Land Registry
