I am buying a property for cash in Bardsley. I have been living for the previous 15 years in Bardsley. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then almost all of the Bardsley conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to take that path of advice. Do consider; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it will likely be be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches reveal.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Bardsley. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Bardsley I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bardsley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Am I better off to go with a Bardsley conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am buying? I have an old university friend who can execute the legal work but his firm is located a couple of hundredmiles drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Bardsley conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign documents, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and in the main were impressed that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Bardsley conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being round the corner.
