At what point does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Silvertown and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Silvertown you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the firms we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Silvertown)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am considering applying for a Kent Reliance mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Silvertown with 65 per cent LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, but Kent Reliance would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
