I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Bermondsey. I have been living for the previous 15 years in Bermondsey. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I know the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Bermondsey conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to take that path of advice. One thing to take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house in the future, it could be of interest to your prospective buyer what the searches reveal. Sometimes premises with day to day issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Bermondsey will provide you some helpful guidance in this regard.
I got the keys to my home on 5 February and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Bermondsey said it will be recorded inside ten days. Are properties in Bermondsey particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Bermondsey registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore post completion formalities is not usually an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

What makes a Bermondsey lease unmortgageable?
There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Bermondsey. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain sections are missing. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:
Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.
You could encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Accord Mortgages Ltd, Barnsley Building Society, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the buyer to withdraw.
