Conveyancing Calendar

Practical Guides

How to sell, purchase and own property

While Iain and Sharon will be there for you every step of the way, they feel it is important for you to have an understanding of what conveyancing covers. Conveyancing can seem like a daunting process. Because of this they offer guides that might be able to help answer some of your initial questions.

Guide to getting to moving day  Guide 1 – CONVEYANCING CALENDAR

First of all the calendar shows the basic and usual way in which a conveyancing transaction runs from beginning to end.  Furthermore it also tries to explain the normal procedures that are undertaken when dealing with any property transaction.  In addition it also points out what both purchaser and seller are required to do, along with the agent and the solicitors.

Timeline – The calendar that is provided splits into 5 stages:
  • One: 1-5 days
  • Two: 5-10 days
  • Three: 10 – 21 days
  • Four: 21 – 31 days
  • Five: 31 days +

It is vital that you appreciate that these are guidelines only.  Since, sometimes it can actually be carried out much quicker, if everything has been organised and is in place to start with.  Yet, on the flip side, Iain and Sharon need you to realise that sometimes things do not always go to plan. The bigger the chain is, the more difficult and time consuming things can potentially become. However, you can rest assured that Iain and Sharon will be there for each stage and will do everything in their power to achieve a smooth and timely completion for you.
