At what point does exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Coniston and do I need to attend the lawyers office?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Coniston you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the firms we work with provide a national conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Coniston)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Coniston with a mortgage from Coventry Building Society. The developers would not move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about this deal as it may affect my mortgage with Coventry Building Society. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
