Buying and selling can be a frustrating process. A lot of this is down to the sluggish pace that things move at. We generally find that on average a transaction will take 8 - 12 weeks from instructing solicitors to possession changing hands. Once a sale has been agreed buyer and seller will usually want to get the sale legally binding at the earliest opportunity.

We have this week exchanged contracts on an empty property which was sold to a cash buyer. The sale was agreed last week, and it took 7 days from the offer being accepted.

Just goes to show what can be achieved, if all parties are willing!
