I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Ferndale. I have resided for the last Seventeen years in Ferndale. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the Ferndale conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to take that path of encouragement . One thing to consider; if you are likely to sell the house in the future, it could be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches disclose. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Ferndale should be able to give you some constructive guidance in this regard.

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Ferndale
We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Ferndale conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Ferndale. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
Am I right to be suspicious that brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a national conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Ferndale conveyancing company?
As is the case with many professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest conveyancers to select. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are free to choose your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that many banks operate an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the lender related work in your transaction.
