At GEP we appreciate that moving house is a stressful time - whether a first time buyer or buying and selling.
Our commitment is to offer you a quality service at a competitive cost. We maintain our high standard of quality by applying the quality control system recommended by the Law Society namely the Solicitors Practice Management Standards.
We will keep you informed at all stages. If you have any queries please telephone the Solicitor involved with your transaction. If the Solicitor is not available your call will be dealt with by another member of the Conveyancing team. If they cannot assist the Solicitor involved in your transaction will return your call as soon as they are free.
In GEP’s experience where the matter is straightforward (for example where the title to the property is freehold; there are few parties in the chain and all documentation required is received promptly) we would expect the moving date to be 6-8 weeks from agreeing the sale. Most matters GEP deal with fall into this category.
Otherwise where the matter becomes complicated (for example where the title to the property is leasehold; there are many parties in a long chain or not all the documentation required is received promptly) then the transaction can take longer for example 12-14 weeks (though we stress that this is just an estimate since it is difficult at this stage to estimate the moving date in such circumstances). Ultimately each transaction is different. We will therefore discuss the moving timetable with you in such circumstances so please do not agree any dates or make any commitments without first liasing with us.
If a straightforward matter becomes complicated or circumstances arise which affect the moving date discussed with us then we will let you know and will discuss a revised time-scale.
Once the matter has commenced we shall review it weekly and will report to you on progress when any steps are taken.
