So once an offer has been made on my property and I have accepted it, how long will it take to be sold?

On average, the whole process can take anywhere from 18 to 20 weeks. However, it can vary due to a number of factors including;

  • The title to the property
  • The buyers mortgage process
  • Addition secured charges
  • Building works undertaking
  • Separating parties
  • If the property is in negative equity
