Who decides when the completion date should be, and when does this need to happen?
As a general rule of thumb a property sale takes approximately 6-8 weeks. As the sale is progressing however and a clearer picture of the timescales involved with the sale/purchase are evident, a proposed exchange and completion date would likely become apparent. If you have a specific date or requirement on completing a property sale, it is imperative you communicate this at the earliest opportunity to all parties concerned (estate agent, vendor or buyer and solicitor). If this date is achievable and suits everybody then it can hopefully be worked towards.
