At what point does exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Riding Mill and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Riding Mill you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure 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 Riding Mill)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Riding Mill and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Riding Mill lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Riding Mill. Having lived in Riding Mill for 5 years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I used Stirling Law a few years past for my conveyancing in Riding Mill. I now require my papers but the law firm has closed. What do I do?
