I am buying a house mortgage free in Finchley. I have resided for the last 20 years in Finchley. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Finchley conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to take that path of advice. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house one day, it may be of importance to your future buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes houses with day to day issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Finchley will provide you some practical advice concerning this.

Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
