At what point does exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Ingatestone and do I need to be at the conveyancers branch?
If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Ingatestone you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we recommend offer a nationwide conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ingatestone)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

How does conveyancing in Ingatestone differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Ingatestone contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Ingatestone usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ingatestone or who has acted in the same development.
