Our conveyancing solicitors will:
- Make sure that the property title is sound and verify the ownership.

How Long Does the Process Take?
There are different variables to consider within a Conveyance that will determine how long the process will take. These variables consist of how long the chain is, if the property is a New Build, Unregistered Property or Leasehold Flat or Apartment. Generally from the date an offer has been agreed by both parties we anticipate that an average conveyance can typically take up to 10-12 weeks to conclude.
