Exchanging contracts

Exchanging contracts

Exchanging contracts occurs after a solicitor has carried out all necessary searches and there is agreement to the contract terms. Once each party has signed the contracts and they have been exchanged, they are binding.

The contracts will include a completion date, which is the date that the property becomes yours. At exchange of contracts any deposit needed has to be paid, and arrangements for building insurance must be made so that the property is insured from that day. Usually, the present insurer will cover this new property free of increased premium until the completion date.
