read more › Typically the buyer requires a mortgage and there is a chain of transactions upon which the sale is reliant. In this case it will usually take between 4 and 6 weeks to reach a position where contract can be exchanged. The main time delay is often awaiting the mortgage offer which in turn relies upon the valuation. In a chain the mortgage offers on each property will need to be in place before an exchange can take place. Similarly, if there are any complications arising, say from adverse search result, on another property in the chain, it will delay the whole.
