We instructed a high street lawyer for my conveyancing in Westonzoyland recently. After carefully reading the Terms I seeI am on the hook for fees even if the sale doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select a web based conveyancing company promoting no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Westonzoyland?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will generally be uplifted to offset the conveyances that fail to complete. Do bear in mind that these schemes generally do not cover expenditure by way of example Westonzoyland conveyancing search expenses.
I am acquiring a property mortgage free in Westonzoyland. I have lived for the last 20 years in Westonzoyland. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I know the area and road intimately 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 Westonzoyland conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to take that path of guidance. One thing to bear in mind; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it could be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal. On occasion houses with functional issues can still throw up unexpected search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Westonzoyland should provide you some practical guidance concerning this.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Westonzoyland I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Westonzoyland suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
