I am buying a house without a mortgage in Grange Park. I have lived for the last 20 years in Grange Park. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Your lawyer will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this.

We had appointed solicitors with offices in Grange Park on the Coventry BS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional sum for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Coventry BS but by your Grange Park conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the Coventry BS panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
