When can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Barbican and do I need to be at the lawyers branch?

A signed contract simply enables the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Barbican)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Barbican. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Kent Reliance be concerned?
As your lender is Kent Reliance your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Kent Reliance. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Kent Reliance where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Barbican.
