Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Mottingham. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Mottingham?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

How does conveyancing in Mottingham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Mottingham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Mottingham typically purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 Mottingham or who has acted in the same development.
