How long will my house purchase take?
How long it will take form your offer being accepted until you can move in will depend on a number of factors.
The average process takes between 4-16 weeks.
It can be quicker or slower depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you are a first time buyer,
purchasing new build with mortgage in principle, it could take 8 weeks.
However, if you are buying a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 2-6 months.
In such a situation additional charges would apply.
