I am buying a house for cash in Cheadle. I have been residing for the last Seventeen years in Cheadle. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Cheadle. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Cheadle - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
