When does exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Merton Park and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?
If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Merton Park you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Merton Park)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I happen to be the sole recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Merton Park. The Merton Park property was put into my name in May. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision principally exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Merton Park is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
