I am purchasing a house without a mortgage in Bowthorpe. I have resided for the previous 15 years in Bowthorpe. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then all but one or two of the Bowthorpe conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to sell the house in the future, it will likely be be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches contain. There are plenty of instances where premises with no practical issues can still reveal unexpected search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Bowthorpe will be able to give you some constructive advice in this regard.
My husband and I intend to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment in Bowthorpe with a homeloan from Leeds Building Society.We like our Bowthorpe conveyancing solicitor but Leeds Building Society says his firm is not listed on their "panel". It seems we have no choice but to instruct a Leeds Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a Leeds Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society
We are planning on selling our property in Bowthorpe and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an internet conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Bowthorpe. Having lived in Bowthorpe for three years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You must 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 illness)
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Bowthorpe. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
