I am buying a house mortgage free in Furzedown. I have lived for the previous 20 years in Furzedown. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then almost all of the Furzedown conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it will likely be be of interest to your future buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes premises with functional issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Furzedown should provide you some helpful advice in this regard.
We are buying a house in Furzedown. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we will need to deposit funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

I'm the single beneficiary of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Furzedown. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this provision chiefly exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.
The mortgage over my property is with Yorkshire BS for my property in Furzedown. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Yorkshire BS?
Yorkshire BS must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Yorkshire BS directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel lawyer.
