I am buying a property for cash in Balsall Heath. I have been living for the last Seventeen years in Balsall Heath. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I know the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then almost all of the Balsall Heath conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to do this.

On occasion houses with day to day issues can still show up unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Balsall Heath should be able to give you some helpful guidance concerning this.

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the property agent advised that the seller will only go ahead if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Balsall Heath
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your preferred Balsall Heath conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.
