The timing of each transaction will vary and will depend on many factors including the personal circumstances of the individuals within the chain, their financial arrangements and the complexity of the titles for any property involved.
It is important to give your conveyancer all the information requested as quickly as possible, make sure you have all the documents you need readily available. Please do inform us if a fixed completion date, or proposed completion timescale, has been agreed in principle when any sale or purchase is agreed.
