What are the common causes of delay in Conveyancing?

Some common causes of delay are:

  • A buyer's survey revealing a lack of building regulation or planning permission for works.
  • Number of parties the chain – a delay at one point in the chain will delay everyone else
  • The buyer's (or someone in the chain ) mortgage application taking longer than normal to process, perhaps because a document required by the lender from a third party is not immediately forthcoming, or because the lender is unusually busy
  • Conveyancing Searches or enquiries showing something unexpected such as a proposed Road Scheme

Fridaysmove will always strive to push the Conveyancing forward and chase-up other Conveyancers, Property Solicitors and third parties who are delaying the Conveyancing transaction. No Conveyancer, can provide any guarantee at the outset that everything will be in place to complete by any particular date and you to be very wary of any conveyancing firm who thinks they can.
