Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Strawberry Hill

When will exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Strawberry Hill and am I required to be at the solicitors branch?

If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Strawberry Hill you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, 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 Strawberry Hill)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

As far as conveyancing in Strawberry Hill registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
