I am acquiring a house for cash in Marks Gate. I have resided for the last twelve years in Marks Gate. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Marks Gate conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this.

Sometimes houses with day to day issues can still reveal adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Marks Gate should be able to give you some constructive guidance concerning this.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel conveyancer as I would prefer to use a Marks Gate based conveyancing firm?
Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers where you take up the "fee-free" offer. Contact the mortgage company and explore if they make available a cash alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Marks Gate.

I was recommended by numerous estate agents in Marks Gate to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers ahead of another?
We refuse to give any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
