When will exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Sutton Coldfield and am I required to attend the conveyancers office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Sutton Coldfield you are welcome to come in to sign contracts. However, the law practices we recommend provide a nationwide conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Sutton Coldfield)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is suspended from the Skipton Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Sutton Coldfield?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
