I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Seaton Delaval. I have lived for the previous dozen years in Seaton Delaval. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then the vast majority of the Seaton Delaval conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to consider; if you are likely to sell the house at a future date, it will be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where properties with apparent issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Seaton Delaval should provide you some practical advice concerning this.
Completed the sale of my flat in Seaton Delaval last November but the buyer keeps calling every few hours to moan that their solicitor needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?

If applicable, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the mortgage has been redeemed to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion procedures just for conveyancing in Seaton Delaval.
My partner and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Co-operative as we wish to carry out renovations to our house in Seaton Delaval. Do we need to choose a bricks and mortar Seaton Delaval solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Co-operative would not normally instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Co-operative panel.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Seaton Delaval. I have a mortgage agreed with Coventry BS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Coventry BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
