When does exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in East Cowes and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in East Cowes you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in East Cowes)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

You will need to appoint East Cowes solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. East Cowes is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in East Cowes are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in East Cowes you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in East Cowes may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
