I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (seven years built) in Hanslope. 95% of the properties have already been sold. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Hanslope?

No doubt your conveyancer, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or it may be necessary to find a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Hanslope.
