I am purchasing a property for cash in Breaston. I have been living for the previous 15 years in Breaston. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a home loan, then the vast majority of the Breaston conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. Do bear in mind; if you are likely to dispose of the house at a future date, it will likely be be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches determine. On occasion houses with apparent issues can still throw up unfavourable search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Breaston will provide you some sensible guidance here.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Breaston? Why is this being asked of me?

In order to comply with Money Laundering Regulations any Breaston conveyancing firm will require proof of identity in all conveyancing transactions. This is normally dealt with by provision of a passport and an original bank statement or utility account evidencing where you live.

In accordance with Money Laundering Regulations, property lawyers are required to ascertain not only the identity of conveyancing clients but also the source of monies that they receive in respect of any matter. An unwillingness to disclose this will lead to your conveyancer ending their relationship with you, as clearly this will cause a conflict between the set Regulations and a refusal to disclose.

Your conveyancers will have an obligation to make a disclosure to the relevant authorities should they believe that any monies received by them may contravene the Money Laundering Regulations.

Will our conveyancer be making enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Breaston.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers dealing with homes in Breaston. There are those who acquire a house in Breaston, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which should figure out the risks in Breaston. The conventional set of information sent to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard inquiry of the owner to determine if the premises has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses resulting from an misleading response. The purchaser’s solicitors will also carry out an enviro search. This should reveal if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be conducted.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Breaston completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
