I am purchasing a property for cash in Walton. I have resided for the last dozen years in Walton. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Walton conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches disclose. There are plenty of instances where properties with no practical issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Walton should be able to give you some practical advice concerning this.

I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Walton for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage lenders Accord Mortgages Ltd won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Walton will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Walton.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Walton it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

I have justdiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Walton for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make 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 Walton conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Walton is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Walton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Walton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Walton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a residence in Cardiff but I am based in Walton. My lawyer (who is 300 kilometers from meneeds me to execute a statutory declaration ahead of the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Walton who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are based in Walton
