When can the exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Allenton and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Allenton you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, 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 long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Allenton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for delay in Allenton conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Allenton.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Allenton is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
