Exchange of contracts
When an offer is accepted or property is bought at auction, the buyer and seller each sign a copy of the contract of sale and keep a copy each, which is why it’s an ‘exchange’ of contracts. This is the stage when the buyer will need to pay the deposit to the seller and marks a formal agreement that the sale will go ahead.
