When will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Aberaeron and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Aberaeron you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the sale agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract simply enables the firm to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Aberaeron)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am buying a property in Aberaeron. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender TSB be concerned?
As your lender is TSB your lawyer must check the formal instructions set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for TSB.

I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Aberaeron bank branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Aberaeron conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
The conveyancer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two conditions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
