How long will my house sale take?

The length of time a sale transaction takes depends on many factors but a usual average time-scale would be between 6 and 12 weeks from commencement. It could be quicker if there is a small or no chain involved, but it could take longer if your chain involves a new build or there are problems found with the property when surveyed or difficulties found on the title or amongst the Contract papers which require the sellers to take steps to remedy them.

The precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances but usually involve most, if not all, of the following:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Take details of any mortgages secured on the property
  • Draft contract documents
  • Obtain further planning documentation if required
  • Reply to enquiries by buyer’s solicitor
  • Send final contract to you for signature
  • Agree completion date (date on which you sell the property)
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
  • Arrange for all monies needed to be received
  • Discharge any mortgages
  • Serve notices on any third parties
  • Account for monies due to you
