THE ANSWERS TO YOUR
SALE QUESTIONS

ANSWERED BY

GEMMA MONDAY

HEAD OF PROPERTY

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SELL A PROPERTY?

The average sale 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 buyer’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 SALE FALLS THROUGH?

The Lyons Bowe Abortive Pledge means that if your sale falls through for any reason that isn’t your fault, your legal fees are covered. All you will have to pay is for your disbursements, which are outlined in your initial estimate so that even if the worst happens, you know where you stand.

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.

CAN YOU DEAL WITH MY RELATED PURCHASE, TOO?

Definitely! Lyons Bowe’s Multi Matter Tracking lets you track the progress of your sale and your purchase at the same time. Our Private Client Teams can also help you to make or update your Wills from our app, too. Pretty smart.
