I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Dorset. I have resided for the last 20 years in Dorset. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Dorset conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house one day, it may be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches contain. There are plenty of instances where houses with day to day issues can still throw up negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Dorset should provide you some helpful guidance in this regard.
How do I find out if the solicitor carrying out my conveyancing in Dorset is on the lender’sapproved panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Bank of Ireland thus spending £187.00 plus VAT in further conveyancing costs.
