THE ANSWERS TO YOUR
PROPERTY QUESTIONS

ANSWERED BY

GEMMA MONDAY

HEAD OF PROPERTY

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUY A PROPERTY?

The average purchase will take between 12-16 weeks to complete. Whilst we will do everything that we can to ensure a speedy and thorough transaction, we are also dependant on third parties (such as councils and search providers) as well as the seller’s side to achieve this goal. We will keep you up to date every step of the way with live updates through your app and via email.

WHAT IF MY PURCHASE FALLS THROUGH?

The Lyons Bowe Abortive Pledge covers your legal fees should your transaction fall through for any reason outside of your control. If your transaction falls through due to no fault of your own, your legal fees will be covered. All you will need to pay for is the disbursements you’ve already incurred up until that point, which will be outlined in your fee estimate.

ARE PROPERTY SEARCHES MANDATORY?

If you are purchasing your property with a mortgage, property searches will be a requirement of the lender. If you are a cash buyer, then property searches aren’t a requirement but we strongly recommend that you take out property searches and a survey. Together, these precautions will help to mitigate the risk of running into unsuspected issues later down the line.

CAN YOU DEAL WITH MY RELATED SALE, TOO?

Definitely! However, when buying a new built you need to be aware that the buyers of your current property may not be comfortable with a completion on notice. You may want to consider “breaking the chain” i.e. selling your property before you complete on your new build. This may mean temporarily moving into rented accommodation.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EXCHANGE & COMPLETION?

Exchange is when the final contracts are exchanged between solicitors. Once the contracts are exchanged, you and the seller are legally bound to the transaction of the property and cannot back out of the transaction. Completion is the date on which ownership of the property is officially transferred over and monies are moved.
