  • How long does it take to buy or sell a residential property?

    Residential sales and purchases on average should take no more than around 8 to 12 weeks but can be longer – or very much quicker – depending on the desire and ability to proceed of both the seller and the buyer and the property title. We have completed transactions in a matter of days on many occasions and likewise others have taken much longer, or have been conditional on e.g. obtaining planning, or new builds where completion can be many months (or years) down the line.

  • How much does it cost to buy or sell property?

    We charge our clients a scale-based fee based on the value and nature of the property, though depending on the nature of conveyancing process and its duration and issues arising, our estimate may go up or down. We will keep you informed at all times, making sure you don’t get caught by any hidden extras.
