Conveyancing Appointments & Signing Documentation

Appointments & Signing Documentation

How many appointments will I need?

You will only be required to have one appointment and where possible all documentation is signed in one go. If any further documentation needs to be signed after your appointment then this can be sent out to you.

If you are unable to attend the office for your appointment the documentation will be sent to you and a telephone conference will be arranged.

What if I live outside the Nottingham area?

No problem! We deal with conveyancing transactions throughout the UK and will send all the documentation to you and explain it thoroughly before you sign.

My buyers / sellers have signed, why have I not signed yet?

There are all sorts of reasons why another party may sign before you do. Indeed, you might be the first party to sign. It really doesn’t actually make any difference because signing doesn’t actually make you legally bound to complete, that only happens on exchange of contracts. For contracts to be exchanged, all parties need to be ready so who is ready first is irrelevant.

How long will my appointment take?

Appointments take from 30 minutes to an hour depending on how complex the transaction is. You should therefore set aside enough time to enable us to go through things properly with you.

What will happen at my appointment?

During your appointment we will go through the Local Search with you and you will sign the transfer, contract and (if relevant) the Mortgage Deed. We will also discuss any queries you may have or other relevant information.

What should I bring to my appointment?

You will need to bring the following:

  • Identification
  • Payment of balance, if applicable
  • Any other relevant documents. If you are required to provide guarantees or planning documents and have not already done so then it is essential you bring these with you.
  • If you have a spouse who is not buying with you, they should still attend as they will also need to be advised as to the implications of living in the property.
  • Exchanging Contracts
