At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Wallasey and am I required to be at the solicitors office?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Wallasey you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the law practices we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange 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 Wallasey)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
