I am buying a house for cash in Finsbury Park. I have resided for the last Seventeen years in Finsbury Park. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Finsbury Park conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he is duty bound to take that path of encouragement . Do take into account; if you are going to sell the house one day, it could be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches disclose. Sometimes properties with no practical issues can still show up detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Finsbury Park will provide you some sensible advice here.
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Finsbury Park. Do I receive the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Finsbury Park?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Finsbury Park. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
Can you point me to a directory of Leeds Building Society panel solicitors in Finsbury Park on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lenders make their panel listings visible online. Where you are in need of a Finsbury Park conveyancing practitioner on the Leeds Building Society please use our facility.
I am expecting a AIP from Bank of Ireland this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Bank of Ireland recommend any Finsbury Park solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Finsbury Park solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Bank of Ireland through the process.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Finsbury Park. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Finsbury Park
Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.
