So, you’re selling a property, your Conveyancer has been in touch with an abundance of forms for you to fill in and sent you the Contract to sign and you have sent it all back as quickly as you can and then…nothing… You call for updates and are told that they are waiting for your buyers to confirm they are ready…what’s going on? It’s a common situation that can scare a Seller into thinking their Buyers aren’t proceeding, have ran off without telling anyone or have been abducted by aliens….well OK, so maybe not that last one!

Don’t panic, no-one has forgotten about you

What’s really going on here is actually much less dramatic. The problem is that a seller does lots of work at the beginning of the transaction giving all the information about the property over and then really doesn’t have anything to do then until their buyer is satisfied they are ready to complete. While everything is quiet on the sale front, your buyers solicitors are frantically running around behind the scenes organising searches (which can take 3-4 weeks) , checking the title for defects and reporting everything to the buyer and their mortgage lender. Your buyer may also organise their own home buyers survey or structural surveys which will also be done during this time. Most Conveyancing transactions actually take about 8-12 weeks to complete.

Your conveyancer will be happy to keep you up to date

Moving house or selling a property can be a stressful and emotional time. If you’re worried, have questions or just want to check in on how things are going – then give your Conveyancer a call. They will help put your mind at ease, give you an update on where they are in the process and you can relax and have a cuppa!

Fidler & Pepper offer a free, online, secure Case Tracker to all of our clients. This allows clients to check on the progress of their case day or night to see what stage they are at and helps put your mind at ease.
