This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Snaith. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Snaith?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Snaith.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Snaith. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
How does conveyancing in Snaith differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Snaith come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Snaith typically buy 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Snaith or who has acted in the same development.
Our solicitor in Snaith is asking me for proof of ID documents saying that this forms part of his obligations as a conveyancer on the bank Solicitor panel. Can this be correct?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the lender. This is not specific to conveyancing in Snaith
