This is usually carried out for resale cases where a Seller and a Buyer entering into a Contract for Sale, which sets out all the terms of the agreement in writing.


Once the Buyer and Seller have both agreed to all the terms of the Contract then the Contract is “exchanged”. This means that Contracts are physically swapped and the buyer’s conveyancer now holds the Contract signed by the seller and vice versa, and at this time the Contract becomes legally enforceable. A 10% Deposit is usually paid on exchange of Contracts.


It is usually about 5 weeks (35 days) between exchange and settlement, however this time frame can be shortened or lengthened by agreement. During this time many actions need to be carried out such as searches are ordered to ensure that there are no outstanding mortgages or service charges with the property, transfer charges must be paid to the Land dept., a buyers loan must be processed and a sellers loan must be discharged.
