When does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Brackla and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Brackla you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Brackla)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am buying a property in Brackla. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Aldermore have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
As your lender is Aldermore your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Aldermore.

The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Brackla.

Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
