Now that the date of entry has arrived, the nerves and excitement will be building. We recognise that this can be a very stressful time for any buyer or seller. It is always our objective to make the process of buying and selling as efficient and stress-free as possible and this includes the date of settlement.

At settlement, there are unfortunately no exact timescales or deadlines as to what time keys will be released. On the date of settlement, depending on the nature of the transaction (buying or selling) we will ensure that we have all the settlement items that we require in order to settle. Just as soon as everything is in order and settlement has been agreed, a request will be made for ‘keys to be released’. It is at this time that a member of our team will contact you to confirm that settlement has taken place and you can collect your keys.
