When will exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Upper Tean and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Upper Tean you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with offer a national conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Upper Tean)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the property agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Upper Tean
It is highly unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your own,trusted Upper Tean conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures set by HQ.
