Default How long to move after PR granted

My partner and I got our PR applications in on the January 2016 Parent & Grandparent quota. We are very surprised to find that our application may well end up 'flying through the system' in under 2 years! That has left us with a bit of difficulty as, given the long processing times in the past for our category,we had intended to wind-up over here in the UK, putting the house on the market (slow moving in our area) and then move in 2018 or 2019 at the earliest,

The question that we'd like to find an answer for is, once the decision to grant PR has been made, is there any 'time limit' on how long we'd have to move over. I think it would need to be within the first 3 years simply to meet the 2/5 requirement but any advice would be much appreciated.

Assuming the same rules apply as for other paths to PR, you'll have to land within 12 months of the date you did your medicals. You needn't stay then though, as long as you meet the residency obligation (730 days in any rolling 5 year period) you'll be OK.

So to get an actual length of time - how long does it normally take between sending the medical and getting a PR decision?
