The national average for conveyancing is 20 weeks. However, Juno completes the process, on average, 8 weeks faster, meaning we take approximately 12 weeks to completion on a freehold property. Leaseholds can take a bit longer, as solicitors generally need to communicate with a management company. If both the seller and purchaser in the same transaction use Juno, we usually complete the process 2-3 weeks quicker.

What searches are involved in the conveyancing process?

The main searches carried out during conveyancing include local authority checks, environmental checks, and water and drainage searches.

Note that properties near water bodies or historic sites may require additional environmental or structural surveys.

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!

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.

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.
