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.

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.
