  • What are "exchange" and "completion"
    The exchange means the exchange of contracts. Many years ago this meant that the buyer and sellers solicitors met and literally exchanged the contracts in identical form signed by their respective clients. Today the exchange usually just takes place over the telephone where each solicitor confirms they are in possession of a signed contract. Exchange is a significant milestone in that the transaction becomes a legally binding contract between the seller and the buyer at that point. One of the terms of the contract at exchange will be the completion date. Referred to as completion. This is the date on which the title to the property is transferred by the sellers solicitor to the buyer, the buyers solicitor transfers the agreed sale price to the seller and the buyer takes possession of the property. This is the date that the new owner of the property usually moves in. There is usually a time period between exchange and completion and this period can vary from a few seconds if exchange and completion take place on the same day or several months, even years. The norm however is usually between 2 and 6 weeks, and it is during this period that each party is able to book removals, make arrangements for the transfer of utilities and post and of course tell friends and family, or not !

We would be pleased to organise this for you.
It would be very helpful if you would give us more than one time when you would be able to view - this avoids some of the "backward and forward" messaging if your prefered time is unavailable.
If there is more than one property you would like to visit please make it clear in the message box which properties you would like to see and when.
If this doesn't turn out to be the right one we would really appreciate some feedback. It really helps our clients to understand what people think of their property and it will also help us better understand what you are looking for.
We hope you like it and look forward to hearing from you
