Things you can do to speed up the conveyancing process

Speed up conveyancing


We know you want to move quickly and there are a few things you can do to help speed up the process and save your conveyancer precious time. 

A word about signing!

Throughout the transaction there will be documents and forms for you to complete and sign. Some documents will need to be signed in front of a witness over the age of 18 who is unrelated to you or the transaction; a friend or neighbour is ideal. Please return all documents sent to you to as quickly as possible, together with any other documents requested. This will make things a lot smoother and save a lot of hassle.

Give your conveyancer some space

We know that you’ll be eager to know what’s happening. But we’ve found that if you chase your conveyancer for updates this will only slowdown the process. Instead, you can monitor the progress online or on your smartphone using Navigator.

Be the early bird

Give yourself a head start and speed up your move by completing the necessary legal documents securely online and before you agree a sale or make an offer using Navigator. Research shows that being legally prepared can speed your home move by up to 11 days as your conveyancer can issue contracts pack within 48 hours of an offer being accepted.

  • Sign and return documents ASAP
  • Respond quickly to enquiries
  • Declare gifted deposits at the start
  • Get  buildings insurance in place
