When does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Hoddesdon and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Hoddesdon you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the firms we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not the important part.

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 Hoddesdon)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
