How long will my application take?

 

Matters usually take 6-8 weeks from receipt of full instructions from you. This is based on the application being relatively straightforward and you being able to provide all the necessary documents promptly. If your matter is more complex, for example, if there is substantial opposition from interested parties, or if there is a delay in receiving the documents we need, it may take longer, and we will advise you of any changes to the timescales.
