I am buying a property for cash in Ilkeston. I have lived for the previous twelve years in Ilkeston. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the Ilkeston 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 bear in mind; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it may be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where houses with apparent issues can still throw up negative search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Ilkeston should provide you some practical advice in this regard.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Ilkeston I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Ilkeston suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
