I am buying a house mortgage free in Catton. I have lived for the previous 15 years in Catton. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of 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 the vast majority of the Catton conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she is duty bound to do this. Do consider; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where properties with day to day issues can still show up detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Catton should be able to give you some sensible advice here.

How does conveyancing in Catton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Catton approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because builders in Catton usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Catton or who has acted in the same development.
