      the title, raise enquiries and apply for searches.

      information provided by the seller’s solicitors.

      mortgage deed and contract and we shall request the deposit and any balance monies we

      require from you.

5.   Exchange contracts and agreed a completion date.

6.   Final searches are undertaken and monies requested from your lender.
