At what point does exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Saltash and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Saltash you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the law practices we work with offer a nationwide conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Saltash)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am assisting my niece sell her flat in Saltash. Does the solicitor order an energy assessment or it is for me to see to?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, EPC’s was maintained a required element of selling a house. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned before the property is marketed. It is not a task that law firms normally organise. Where you are using a Saltash conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established Saltash assessors
We were going to get a AIP from Coventry BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Saltash solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Saltash solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Saltash. I have a mortgage agreed with Nottingham. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
I require fast conveyancing in Saltash as I am faced with an ultimatum to complete inside 3 weeks. Fortunately I do not need a mortgage. Can I escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?
As you are are a mortgage free purchaser you are at liberty not to do searches although no law firm would recommend that you don't.
