I am buying a property for cash in Mold. I have resided for the previous Seventeen years in Mold. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then all but one or two of the Mold conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to consider; if you are going to sell the house one day, it may be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal. Sometimes properties with functional issues can still show up detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Mold should be able to give you some constructive advice in this regard.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Mold solicitor on the Aldermore panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
