Depending on the complexity of the transaction (for instance, if the house is old more searches and surveys may be required) the conveyancing process usually takes between 6-8 weeks.

Residential Conveyancing FAQ

It takes around 6-8 weeks for a sale and purchase transaction to complete.  However, complex deals may take longer.  Neither the buyer nor the seller is legally bound to go through with the transaction until contracts exchange.  By then, all the property searches will have been completed, the title checked, and questions from both sides answered.

If you are buying a property with a partner, relative or friend, determining whether the property will be owned by all, as joint tenants or tenants in common, is necessary.

Joint tenants implies all purchasers own the land and any buildings on it in a 100% equal shares; therefore, they act as a single owner.  Upon the death of one of the owners, the entire ownership of the property automatically transfers to the surviving purchaser.  This is known as the ‘right of survivorship.’

If you purchase property as tenants in common, each purchaser owns a specified portion of the property.  The shares do not have to be equal.  There is no ‘right of survivorship; each purchaser can dispose of their share of the property as they wish through their Will.
