I am acquiring a property without a mortgage in Poole. I have been residing for the last dozen years in Poole. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I know the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then all but one or two of the Poole conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will try and sway you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to take that path of encouragement . Do bear in mind; if you are intend to dispose of the house in the future, it will likely be be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. On occasion houses with apparent issues can still throw up adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Poole should provide you some practical guidance here.
My fiance and I intend to purchase a newly converted flat in Poole with a homeloan from Skipton Building Society.We would like to retain our Poole conveyancing solicitor but Skipton Building Society informed us her practice is not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Skipton Building Society panel firm or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that conveyancers must be on the Skipton Building Society conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society

2 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Poole took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
