Just been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Ramsgate who conducted the legals 18 months ago and wanted a conveyancing quote based on the same type of home move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of similar values with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society. It looks as though am now being quoted twice the amount. Better the devil I know or do I try and find an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Ramsgate. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Ramsgate?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion.

How does conveyancing in Ramsgate differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Ramsgate contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Ramsgate typically 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 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 Ramsgate or who has acted in the same development.
