I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and must leave my rented flat in Folkestone by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase has just started. Can I complete in a couple of weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?
The normal practice is not to provide notice on a rental unless your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not previously done so, update to your solicitor and request that they seek the assistance the other lawyers, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will look to achieve

How does conveyancing in Folkestone differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Folkestone contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because builders in Folkestone tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Folkestone or who has acted in the same development.

Been searching for a lawyer for leasehold sale conveyancing in Folkestone. I'm selling, simple no mortgage to discharge, no hurry, no onward chain. Had a quote from a conveyancing practitioner for a thousand pounds plus VAT which is a tad steep considering its so straightforward. Is it possible to find less expensive fees for conveyancing in Folkestone?
Given that it’s a sale only, £450 + VAT should be about the lowest for sale conveyancing in Folkestone.
