I am acquiring a house for cash in Redditch. I have lived for the last dozen years in Redditch. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Redditch conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to take that path of encouragement . One thing to take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house one day, it will be of relevance to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. Sometimes premises with apparent issues can still reveal unexpected search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Redditch will provide you some sensible advice concerning this.

How does conveyancing in Redditch differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Redditch contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Redditch typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Redditch or who has acted in the same development.
