Since you are not based in the UK, you need a solicitor who will thoroughly conduct due diligence and advise you if there are going to be any complications. UK property law is straightforward; however, property chains can create complications and delays. Normally the process of due diligence through to deed transfer takes approximately 6-10 weeks. However, with chains, if part of the chain fails this can cause delays.
What is a chain and what can we do to avoid it?
If a property is occupied by the current owner and they can only vacate once their new home exchanges, delays can occur due to sales breaking down further up the chain. Although we can’t control this, we will, as your mortgage solicitors in London, keep you informed of every step we are taking and ensure you are ready to exchange as soon as the property becomes available.
