I am purchasing a property without a mortgage in Edgwarebury. I have resided for the last twelve years in Edgwarebury. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I have knowledge of the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then all but one or two of the Edgwarebury conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to take that path of guidance. One thing to take into account; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it will be of importance to your future buyer what the searches determine. On occasion premises with day to day issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Edgwarebury will provide you some helpful advice concerning this.

Our offer on a detached house in Edgwarebury has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Edgwarebury. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Principality?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Edgwarebury conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancer is on the Principality approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Edgwarebury.
