I am buying a house for cash in South Yorkshire. I have lived for the previous twelve years in South Yorkshire. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I know the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then almost all of the South Yorkshire conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he is duty bound to take that path of guidance. Do take into account; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it may be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal. On occasion properties with apparent issues can still show up unexpected search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in South Yorkshire will provide you some helpful guidance concerning this.
How up to date is your database of South Yorkshire solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Do Co-operative send you an updated list?
South Yorkshire conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Co-operative directly.

The deeds to my house can not be found. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in South Yorkshire 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your lawyer should know precisely where to locate all the relevant paperwork so you can buy or sell your house without any difficulty. Where copies are not available, your lawyer may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on the property.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in South Yorkshire I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in South Yorkshire for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
