Frequently Asked Questions
The average sale and purchase takes around ten to twelve weeks from receipt of the draft contract package. The time it takes depends on numerous factors. Firstly, is there a chain involved? If so things get delayed when any member of the chain has a hold up. Your mortgage arrangements, or those of your buyer, can also delay the process.
