A typical conveyancing transaction (sale or purchase) takes on average 12 to 15 weeks to complete. The time taken is dependent on a number of factors, many of which are not in our control, such as obtaining search results, arranging the survey and/or mortgage and the pace of the other parties involved in the transaction.

We have used Hay & Kilner several times now and for good reason. Moving house can be a very stressful time but Claire Simmons and her team, especially Lynn Liddle, have been excellent throughout.
I normally hesitate before giving a review in general, but in this case I have no hesitation in giving my wholehearted recommendation for this firm and not simply confined to house purchase.


We were kept fully informed throughout the process. Everything was clearly explained and all queries dealt with promptly. We were always able to speak to someone when we called, if not immediately they would call back within minutes.


Claire Simmons and her conveyancing team were exceptional. They gave regular updates on progress and excellent advice during negotiations. The whole process ran smoothly and efficiently. Hay & Kilner's electronic verification, signing and payments systems were very user friendly.
