Exchange of contracts is when the contract becomes contractually binding between a seller and buyer – this is essentially, your point of no return! Once respective solicitors are holding a signed contract from their client and the completion date (your moving day) has been agreed between all parties involved in the chain, the exchange of contracts takes place.

Exchange usually happens over the telephone between solicitors and it is at this stage that a deposit (typically 10% of the purchase price) is paid by the buyer to the seller via their solicitor. Please note that money should never pass between the seller and buyer directly.

Rest assured, we will not authorise the exchange of contracts without speaking to you immediately before – you may have won the lottery the night before and decide not to proceed! Similarly, if you are buying and selling together, there are procedures in place to prevent you owning two homes or neither.

Following exchange, the solicitors will then prepare matters ready for the next stage – completion.
