I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Blakeney. I have resided for the previous Seventeen years in Blakeney. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Blakeney conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to take that path of advice.

Sometimes premises with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Blakeney should provide you some constructive guidance here.

Intending to buy a apartment in Blakeney. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Blakeney solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

The conveyancing solicitors undertaking our conveyancing in Blakeney has sent documents to review that state the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in Blakeney should be registered?
Whilst the vast majorities of properties in Blakeney are now registered with HMLR there are still a few that remain unregistered. Any property in Blakeney that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HMLR under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Blakeney property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Blakeney conveyancing lawyers will be capable of dealing with such matters but in the event that uncertainty prevails the conventional advice these days is for the seller’s conveyancer to address the registration formalities first and then deal with the sale conveyance - this no doubt result in a protracted transaction.
