At what point will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Thornaby and am I required to attend the lawyers office?
If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Thornaby you are invited in to sign contracts.

The signing of the property agreement is not the important part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm 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 in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Thornaby)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
