Prior to exchange you will need to provide the agreed deposit (normally 10%) to your solicitor Upon exchanged both parties are legally bound. On the day of completion your solicitor will transfer the balance monies to your vendor’s solicitor which will complete your purchase. Once this has been confirmed then we can release keys to you.
