Now that you have exchanged you now have to hire the services of a conveyancing practitioner soon as you are facing a pending a drop dead date to complete the purchase. An auction property will have a corresponding auction set of papers. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the auction pack may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation specific to leasehold premises.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a garden flat in Harefield. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Harefield?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Harefield. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be called to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property.

How does conveyancing in Harefield differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Harefield approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Harefield usually purchase 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 used to new build conveyancing in Harefield or who has acted in the same development.
