At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Danbury and do I need to be at the conveyancers branch?
If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Danbury you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we work with provide a national conveyancing service and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Danbury)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
