I am buying a property without a mortgage in Nunhead. I have resided for the previous dozen years in Nunhead. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then all but one or two of the Nunhead conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to take that path of encouragement . One thing to consider; if you are intend to sell the house in the future, it may be of importance to your prospective buyer what the searches disclose. Sometimes properties with apparent issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Nunhead should provide you some practical guidance here.

I am the only recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Nunhead. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being problematic. The Nunhead solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Bank of Ireland are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
The deeds to my house are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Nunhead 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be retained by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, find your house and obtain current copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.

Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? 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. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Please supply a car parking plan.
