I am acquiring a house for cash in Murton. I have resided for the last dozen years in Murton. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then the vast majority of the Murton conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of relevance to your future buyer what the searches determine. On occasion properties with day to day issues can still throw up unexpected search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Murton will be able to give you some constructive guidance in this regard.
What will a local search reveal about the property we're buying in Murton?

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Murton is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Murton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Murton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Murton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
Is it best to appoint a Murton conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am purchasing? An old friend can handle the conveyancing but his firm is located 200kilometers away.
The primary upside of using a local Murton conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a plus. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and they were impressed that should trump using an unknown Murton conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
