When will exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Gants Hill and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?
If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Gants Hill you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Gants Hill)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
