No two home purchases are alike, and each will depend on the conditions, your position and the seller’s position. If the seller has already moved out of the property and you have secured a mortgage, the exchange of contracts and completion can happen quite quickly.

However, if property chains are involved and you need to secure a mortgage, the exchange of contracts can take 4 to 6 weeks and a further 2 to 4 weeks for completion.

In 2022, it takes an average of 18 weeks to buy a house.


Depending on where in the country you’re located, you may be eligible for a home-buying scheme. In a bid to help buyers, these government-backed schemes could help you get your foot on the housing ladder. Here’s a rundown on affordable schemes to consider.
