I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Bournemouth. I have been living for the previous Seventeen years in Bournemouth. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Bournemouth conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to sell the house one day, it will likely be be of importance to your future buyer what the searches reveal. On occasion properties with day to day issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Bournemouth will be able to give you some helpful advice here.
It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Bournemouth. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I can't find my title deeds. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in most cases the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Bournemouth involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more problematic but is resolvable.
Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are the primary cause of obstruction in Bournemouth conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Bournemouth.
