We are due to move home in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Hythe. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your page.

On the day of completion you can collect the keys from the property agent however this can only occur after the vendors lawyers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected.

As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Hythe or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Hythe.

How does conveyancing in Hythe differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Hythe approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Hythe usually buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hythe or who has acted in the same development.

Make use of our comparison tool on this site to check that the solicitors are approved by both mortgage companies. On the basis that they are your lawyer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you solicitor and communicate your desired outcome and needs.

How easy is it to change a solicitor as I need to find a Hythe based conveyancer who is on the lender conveyancing panel. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?

If you haven't yet appointed a solicitor to do anything for you and at this stage simply received quotes, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Hythe that you're considering.
