    In about a month I should be exchanging contracts (fingers crossed). I am selling my existing property of £280k and downsizing to something costing £182k. I am paying the remainder of my mortgage, £30k, using the gained equity. My question is, will I be required to pay a deposit (usually 10% I believe) when we exchange. I have this money (approx £18k), but will need a little time to free it up. Alternatively, can the solicitor use some of the deposit made by my buyer, as his deposit on my property will be a lot more ?

    Your deposit that your buyer pays will be passed onto the next one so don’t worry!
