Here are some frequently asked questions

How long will my property purchase take?

There are many factors involved with the timescale of a leasehold sale. The average process takes between 10-14 weeks. This can vary based on all parties in the chain.

What does the fee assume?

Our fee assumes that:

  1. This is a standard transaction, and no unforeseen matters arise, including, for example, (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying before completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction.
  2. This is the assignment of an existing lease and is not the grant of a new lease.
  3. The transaction is concluded promptly, and no unforeseen complications arise.
  4. All parties to the transaction are cooperative, and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation.
  5. No indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.
  6. Your property is registered at the Land Registry. If not, additional charges will apply.
