I am acquiring a house without a mortgage in Sudbury. I have resided for the previous Seventeen years in Sudbury. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then all but one or two of the Sudbury conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it will likely be be of interest to your prospective buyer what the searches contain. On occasion houses with no practical issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Sudbury will provide you some helpful advice in this regard.
I have justbecome aware that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Sudbury for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sudbury conveyancing specialists.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a two apartments in Sudbury both have about forty five years left on the leases. should I be concerned?
A lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Sudbury.Conveyancing is yet to be initiated however I have recently received a half-yearly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the service charge as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
