You will be notified which lawyer will be looking after your matter when we send you our initial terms of business letter. That letter will also include confirmation of the hourly charging rate for that lawyer, which will apply to any work outside the scope of the fixed fees outlined.
How long will the transaction take?
How long it will take from the offer being accepted until you can move will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 8 to 10 weeks.
It can be quicker or slower depending on other parties in the chain.
A transaction where either you or your buyer need a mortgage offer is likely to take longer than a transaction with no mortgage required.
A transaction where one of the parties in the chain is buying a new build property may result in a longer completion date.
If you are dealing with a leasehold transaction it may take longer to obtain the management pack from the landlord of if a lease extension is required this can take considerably longer, sometimes months rather than weeks to complete.
Our Residential Property team is made up of 1 partner, 2 associates, 4 solicitors, 4 paralegals and 1 legal assistant. You ca find their contact details below.
