When will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Malmesbury and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
If you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Malmesbury you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the firms we recommend provide a national conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor 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 lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Malmesbury)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

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.
