I am buying a property without a mortgage in Wolviston. I have resided for the previous twelve years in Wolviston. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Wolviston conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he has a professional duty to take that path of encouragement . One thing to take into account; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it may be of importance to your future buyer what the searches determine. Sometimes properties with apparent issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Wolviston will provide you some sensible advice concerning this.
My wife and I buying a terrace house in Wolviston. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to see if these alterations are permitted?
Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Wolviston can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain works or require the permission of another owner. Certain additions call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Wolviston on 10/8/2020, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I have a terraced Edwardian property in Wolviston. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wolviston and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.
I am buying my first flat in Wolviston with a loan from Bank of Ireland. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about the extras as it would adversely affect my loan with Bank of Ireland. Is this normal?.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
