    How long from mortgage interview until completion? 10th May 18 at 8:08 PM
    Hi, was just wanting to know how long it usually takes from mortgage interview to completion of sale?

    I know everyoneís circumstances are different but just to get an idea...

    Iím a FTB, already have AIP, seller is already in their new house, so the one Iím buying is sitting empty. My valuation is being done before my mortgage interview so this step will already be completed (apparently they can do this now).

    As long as this piece of string I have in my hand......


    Anywhere between 6 weeks and 6 months. And sometimes more!

    As a general guide, from start to finish with no-chain takes about 10-12 weeks. The main delay is solicitors' queries (they have many properties to deal with). I'm guessing you're only a few weeks in. It's quite normal for valuations to being before the underwriter starts looking at your application.

    If things are stalling, the vendors EA will usually be happy to assist in finding out the current state-of-play.
