After a deal has been agreed between a buyer and seller it often takes a few days to get going but there is no need for that delay. Why not get your mortgage arranged (if you’re buying) and solicitor appointed ahead of time. All the necessary initial paperwork, such as Term and Conditions and identity documentation, can be done ahead of time. It is unlikely this will incur any expense but will save you up to 2 weeks on the time taken to get to exchange of contracts. You know it makes sense!
