How long does conveyancing take?

For property purchases, conveyancing usually takes in the region of 8-12 weeks. It can take between 4-8 weeks for contracts to be exchanged and then a further 2-4 weeks between exchange of contracts and completion.

If however a mortgage is not required on the property that is being purchased, and the property is currently unoccupied the entire process can be completed within a few weeks, assuming there are no unforeseen complications with the purchase.

What is Conveyancing?

Conveyancing refers to the transfer of ownership (the title) of a property from one person to another.

The buyer and the seller of the property must choose their own solicitors who will represent them throughout the transaction. The process can take anything from a month to several months and depends on the speed of the property expert as well as the legalities involved.

As conveyancing is a reserved legal activity under Section 12 of the Legal Services Act 2007 (“the LSA”), only professionals who have undergone specialist studies and training are allowed to undertake them. The two types of professional you can use in England and Wales are Licensed Conveyancers and Conveyancing Solicitors.
