These fees vary from property to property and can on occasion be significantly more than the ranges given above. We can give you an accurate figure once we have sight of your specific documents.

You should also be aware that ground rent and service charge are likely to apply throughout your ownership of the property. We will confirm the ground rent and the anticipated service charge as soon as this we receive this information.

How long will the sale of my property take?

How long it will take from you accepting the buyer’s offer to receiving payment will depend on a number of factors. The average process takes between 10-15 weeks.

It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if your buyer is a first time buyer, or is selling an existing property as part of a chain, it could take around 15 weeks. However, if you are selling a leasehold property that requires an extension of the lease, this can take significantly longer, between 4 and 6 months. In such, a situation additional charges would apply.
