You’ve found a buyer. You’re ready to hand over the keys and move on. The Auctioneer is smiling but your Solicitor is quizzical and you wonder; “How long is this going to take?

This is the question we are frequently asked when our clients are selling residential property. The answer will vary depending on the transaction however if you are selling property there are a number of things you can do to assist your Solicitor to speed up the process.

The Law Society has prepared a useful checklist which sets out the information you can gather and provide to your Solicitor. The sooner we have this information the sooner we can prepare the appropriate legal documents required to sell your property. Please see this checklist here.
