When does exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Seaton Sluice and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Seaton Sluice you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we recommend provide a nationwide conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Seaton Sluice)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
