Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Hillingdon)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
