I am purchasing a property mortgage free in Par. I have resided for the last 15 years in Par. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a mortgage, then almost all of the Par conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to take that path of advice. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house at a future date, it may be of interest to your prospective buyer what the searches disclose. Sometimes premises with no practical issues can still reveal negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Par will be able to give you some constructive advice in this regard.
It is is a decade since I purchased my house in Par. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my title documents. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they could still be with the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Par relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Par. Do I receive the keys to the premises on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Par?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Par. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
We are aiming to move home in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Par. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your page.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from the property agent however this should only be done after the vendors conveyancers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Lloyds, do Par solicitors face an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?

Should my lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Par.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers dealing with homes in Par. Plenty of people will acquire a house in Par, completely expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Par. The conventional set of information supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out if the property has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the vendor, then a purchaser may commence a compensation claim as a result of such an incorrect response. The buyer’s lawyers should also carry out an enviro report. This will reveal whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be carried out.
