I am acquiring a property for cash in Littleover. I have lived for the last 20 years in Littleover. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a home loan, then all but one or two of the Littleover conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are intend to sell the house one day, it could be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches disclose. Sometimes houses with day to day issues can still throw up negative search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Littleover will provide you some sensible advice concerning this.

Developers have put forward a conveyancer and I've received an estimate from them. It's almost three hundred pounds cheaper than my own Littleover property lawyer. What's the catch?
Builders often have panels of lawyers who expedite matters and who know the seller’s contract and conveyancer. Plenty of developers offer an inducement to select a preferred property lawyer for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a builder will not recommend a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they demand an exchange inside a month. The argument for not agreeing to use the suggested solicitor is that they may prove reluctant to 'push' your interests for fear of alienating the developer. If you worry that this may be the situation you should remain with your local Littleover conveyancing practitioner.
