I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Aylesbury. I have lived for the last 15 years in Aylesbury. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Aylesbury conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to do this. One thing to consider; if you are likely to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your future buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes premises with functional issues can still reveal unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Aylesbury will be able to give you some constructive advice concerning this.
Do I have to have a meeting at the offices of the solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Aylesbury so that I can attend their offices if required.
Whereas this was necessary 15 years ago, the vast majority lenders no longer oblige their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. It will still be necessary for you to hand over ID documents and there are still distinct benefits to instructing a locally based ayer, in your situation a conveyancing solicitor in Aylesbury.
We are selling our property in Aylesbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Aylesbury. Having lived in Aylesbury for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
