I am acquiring a property for cash in Crayford. I have resided for the previous twelve years in Crayford. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road very well 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 Crayford conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will try and sway you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to do this. Do consider; if you are going to sell the house one day, it will be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches determine. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still reveal unfavourable search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Crayford should be able to give you some helpful advice here.
4 months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Crayford took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Crayford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Crayford come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Crayford usually acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Crayford or who has acted in the same development.
