I'm in the process of swapping over from my current residential loan to a BTL Clydesdale mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I require a solicitor for this. I spoke to my former Kensal Rise conveyancing practitioner who acted on my behalf when I previously bought the property. The quote they've given of £500 has taken me by surprise as its a remortgage than a sale or purchase.

I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Kensal Rise. 95% of the properties have already been sold. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Kensal Rise?
Where you are obtaining a loan, your bank will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Kensal Rise conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your solicitor, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Kensal Rise.
