The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange at the suitable time, 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 involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Gospel Oak)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Gospel Oak benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not reveal to my lawyer about this side-deal as it may put at risk my mortgage with Nottingham Building Society. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Gospel Oak I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Gospel Oak in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial offices in Gospel Oak and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to commercial leaseholders, giving them the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy at the end of an expired lease. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
