I am purchasing a house for cash in Ammanford. I have been residing for the last 15 years in Ammanford. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Ammanford conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. One thing to consider; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where houses with apparent issues can still throw up unexpected search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Ammanford should be able to give you some sensible guidance here.

What will a local search inform me regarding the house we're buying in Ammanford?

I'm buying a new build house in Ammanford with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The estate agent suggested that I not to tell my lawyer about this side-deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Ammanford is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Ammanford are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ammanford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ammanford may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
