Conveyancing In Swiss Cottage Q & A's
Should I change the locks after I move in?
It would be a wise move to replace the locks upon moving into your new home, for peace of mind if nothing else. Although you may have received a number of copies of the keys, you may not know accurately whether that bunch constitutes every copy.
Although changing the locks will be an extra cost, you may find that buildings insurance may look on the move favourably, too.

As a consequence of the Met Office projecting more intense rainfall, we are wondering if environmental searches might not be detailed enough?
A competent conveyancing solicitor in Swiss Cottage will recommend that you carry out specialist conveyancing searches (environmental) if the initial searches establishes a local Swiss Cottage flood risk.
For more assurance you can converse with a future neighbour.
When in the process do you need to instruct a conveyancer in Swiss Cottage?
The short answer is, the sooner you instruct a firm, the better, as the legal work can commence very early in the process. Prompt instruction of a solicitor to act for you on your Swiss Cottage transaction could mitigate the chance of the transaction aborting.
When should I book a removals firm?
It’s very tempting to get wrapped in the excitement of moving home and wanting to get everything sorted out and in the diary. But, if you book a removals firm too early, prior to the exchange of contracts (when the date and time of completion is legally set), you risk the possibility that the date might change, thereby having to pay a fee to the removals firm to change the plans.
There is nothing stopping you in contacting a selection of firms to get a quote for removal and to negotiate the possibility of pencilling a date in but ensure you obtain agreement that this is subject to change and confirmation.
What issues are key to guarantee a fast exchange and completion?
Essential to fast conveyancing is to employing a proactive solicitor. Beyond that, there are several things you as the purchaser can also do to accelerate the legal work, including, pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible and organising your finances.
