On average, our transactions are completed in just 12 weeks for freehold properties. Please bear in mind, leasehold transactions can take longer due to the need to correspond with management companies. If both parties opt for Juno conveyancing, we often shave another 2-3 weeks off.

What are the usual searches in conveyancing?

The key searches involved in conveyancing involve local authority checks, environmental surveys and water & drainage reports. These are important in ensuring the property is free from any potential liabilities that could affect ownership.

As a buyer, what should I know about purchasing a home in Chester?

Buying a home in Chester comes with its unique aspects. Chester is a historical city noted for its Roman and medieval architecture. When buying older or listed properties, pay close attention to the property survey to understand potential structural issues. Property prices here tend to be higher than the national average, reflecting Chester’s desirable location and quality of life.

What documents are needed to buy a house?

To buy a property, you’ll need to provide your photo ID (for example, a passport or driving license), proof of funds which usually comes from bank statements, and your mortgage offer.

What documents are needed to sell a house?

In order to sell a property, you would need to provide, at a minimum, your photo ID (either a passport or driving licence) and the details of your mortgage. Throughout the process, Juno’s legal team will guide you through compiling or finding the other required documents such as the Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), property information forms TA6 and TA10, leasehold management packs, and others.

What counts as proof of funds when buying a house?

Proof of funds usually entails providing recent bank statements or savings accounts displaying enough funds to cover the purchase price and any related costs.

What factors can delay the conveyancing process?

Delays in the conveyancing process can be caused by several factors including delays from the other party’s side, a backlog at the local authority causing a delay in search results, or complications uncovered during the searching and surveying process.

Rated ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot


I had tried other conveyancers but was not very impressed. Like everyone the internet was next and Juno came up. Checked the reviews and they were positive. So I used them for the sale of my house. I am very impressed with them and the dashboard they use. They kept me up to date with the total experience. Very reasonably priced.

We were a bit nervous about who to use but Juno made everything so easy with their Dashboard that tells you exactly where you are in the process, meaning you never have to chase them for an update. All the actions they had to take were taken within 24h, which was great as we were keen to complete the sale fast.

Best customer service I have received ever! Process was made simple, fast, conveyancing team knew what they were doing and the rest of the team always answered any question extremely fast. The dashboard system meant that we would receive regular updates without even needing to ask!
