This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a garden flat in Farnham Common. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Farnham Common?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Farnham Common. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be called to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Co-operative. Is it usual for Co-operative to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Farnham Common is approved on their conveyancing panel? Co-operative have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Co-operative to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Most buyers of new build residence in Farnham Common approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Farnham Common tend to acquire 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 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.
