At what point will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Gwernaffield and do I need to be at the lawyers branch?
Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Gwernaffield you are invited in to sign the paperwork.

The procedure 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 Gwernaffield)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Gwernaffield for our house move. Our broker informed us that our bank Barclays Direct won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?
Mortgage Companies ordinarily restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their member panel. Typical examples of such criteria being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the profile of firm, some have decided to limit the number of solicitor practices they allow to act for them. You should note that Barclays Direct have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Barclays Direct Conveyancer Panel.
