A bit chicken and egg.

You can’t exchange without a completion date and you can’t book removals at all without a completion date. You can provisionally book removals without exchanging contracts though, as long as you have a draft completion date…

Presumably, it wasn’t possible to exchange as the other party wanted to change the completion date and you had to agree to that first.
