I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (five years old) in North Shields. 95% of the properties are already sold. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in North Shields?
If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your bank will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then North Shields conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. 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 insist that 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 North Shields.
It is is a decade since I purchased my home in North Shields. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I can't find my title deeds. Is this a problem?
You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with your lender or they could still be with the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in North Shields involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
