I am purchasing a property without a mortgage in Kirkby Stephen. I have lived for the previous Seventeen years in Kirkby Stephen. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then almost all of the Kirkby Stephen conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house at a future date, it could be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still throw up unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Kirkby Stephen will be able to give you some constructive advice in this regard.

Given that I will soon part with over three hundred thousand on 3 bedroom house in Kirkby Stephen I would like to talk to a solicitor about mytransaction prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we appoint their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to use your preferred Kirkby Stephen conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.
My lawyers in Kirkby Stephen have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the bank. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the lender Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the lender directly.
