I am purchasing a property without a mortgage in Hither Green. I have lived for the last twelve years in Hither Green. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Hither Green conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to sell the house at a future date, it could be of importance to your prospective purchaser what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where premises with apparent issues can still reveal detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Hither Green should provide you some constructive guidance concerning this.
We note that you have a search directory identifying law firms on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a commission if I appoint them for our own conveyancing in Hither Green?

I'm purchasing a new build house in Hither Green benefiting from help to buy. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could put at risk my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Me and my husband have agreed a price on a Hither Green apartment we inherited ten years ago in 2011. I have over ten years conveyancing knowledge and, although retired, wish to conduct the conveyancing. The purchaser's solicitor has informed me that their bank will not allow us to do our own conveyancing requiring the funds to be sent to a solicitor's bank account.
Mortgage instructions to lawyers from all CML members state that If the vendor is not legally represented the purchaser’s lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be told so that a decision can be reached if they are willing to move forward.
