When does exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Gower and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Gower you are invited in to sign documents. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer 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 a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Gower)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.
