Question #12742

How long does it take to buy a shared ownership house in the UK on average?

A very rough estimate please, from finding a house and putting an application in getting the keys!

  • Egbert

Allow three months. With luck it will be quicker.

  • Maxi

Depends on the HA and how quick they assess the application, reality is depends on what hoops they want you to jump through but generally no more time than purchasing a property that you get a mortgage for, have it surveyed and the normal legal process... which is 'normally' done within 8-10 weeks
