At what point does exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Chandlers Ford and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Chandlers Ford you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the law practices we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure 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 Chandlers Ford)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Nowadays conveyancing panel lawyers for mortgage companies undertake the vast majority of work via the post, internet or over phone calls.

That being said you should check if you have the option of going to the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the process as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Chandlers Ford. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Chandlers Ford?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be called to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
We had chosen conveyancers with offices in Chandlers Ford on the Kent Reliance solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a supplemental amount for dealing with the Kent Reliance mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Kent Reliance?
Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer can charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Kent Reliance but by your Chandlers Ford property lawyer. Some firms on the Kent Reliance panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but some firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
I have instructed a Chandlers Ford conveyancer having checked that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Chandlers Ford surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

My husband and I are 3 weeks into a freehold purchase having been referred to solicitors by the local agent to handle our conveyancing in Chandlers Ford. I am am starting to be frustrated with the level of service. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
They would have to be really poor in order to consider changing them. Has the loan offer been sent? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the replacement lawyer and ensure the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid supplemental fees and delays. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.
