I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years built) in Allenton. 95% of the flats are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Allenton?
You are putting yourself at risk in not carrying out Allenton conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would absolutely advise in no uncertain terms that you have them. Where speed and driving down costs are primary issues you should discuss with your solicitor about the option of search insurance
