It is possible to have a simultaneous exchange and completion if you are in a real hurry to get moving. When you complete the sale, your solicitor forwards the remaining balance of the purchase price to the seller's solicitor. You then have the right to take occupancy of the property and are free to move in.

A payment made by investors for new shares. The term would apply to payments made when a company first floats on the stock exchange and also when it has a rights issue. Call payments can be staged. For instance, if you subscribe to an offer on flotation, the terms may require you to pay in two instalments - the first at the time of your subscription and the second six months later. Issuing companies use this as a device to attract shareholders, and it was widely used when the UK government privatised its state-owned industries in the 1980s and 1990s.
