    How Long Does Conveyancing Take in Haringey?

    The conveyancing process takes 159 days to complete on average in all London areas, including Haringey. This matches the national average, although the entire process takes longer in London.

    In London, it takes approximately 297 days from the initial listing to completion day. This is 23 days longer than the 274-day national average. This means that properties are on the market for a longer period of time before an offer is accepted. However, the amount of time your transaction will take is dependent on the complexity of the case.

    Difficult cases are more costly and will take longer to complete. For example, buying or selling a leasehold property requires more paperwork submission that your conveyancer must complete. This is why leasehold properties have a higher rate than freehold properties.
