    HSBC - how long for them to transfer mortgage funds

    HSBC - how long for them to transfer mortgage funds 7th Oct 09 at 8:14 PM

    We should be exchanging on our first house tomorrow and we're supposed to be completing on the 19th. Our solicitor has just been told that it will take HSBC 10 working days to ensure the funds are in her account ready to complete, pushing completion back to 21st at the earliest. Anyone know how long other banks take - our solicitor is somewhat surprised that it will take such a long time for a simple transfer of funds when absolutely everything else has been in place for weeks!

    Any info gratefully received!
