I am buying a house for cash in Kings Lynn. I have been residing for the previous 20 years in Kings Lynn. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that 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 mortgage, then the vast majority of the Kings Lynn conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to take that path of guidance. Do consider; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it will be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where houses with no practical issues can still show up negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Kings Lynn will provide you some practical guidance in this regard.

Can I be sure that the Kings Lynn conveyancing solicitor on the Aldermore panel is any good?

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Kings Lynn. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR who will take matters further.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Kings Lynn solicitor - who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Skipton will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Skipton will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Kings Lynn surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
