I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Llansamlet. The vast majority the properties have already been occupied. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Llansamlet?
Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Llansamlet conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. 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 demand that 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 Llansamlet.

How does conveyancing in Llansamlet differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Llansamlet approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Llansamlet tend to buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Llansamlet or who has acted in the same development.
