I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Monmouthshire. 95% of the flats have already been disposed of. Is it really necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Monmouthshire?
Where you are obtaining a loan, your bank will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Monmouthshire conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. No doubt your conveyancer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, 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 choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you may need to instruct a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Monmouthshire.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Monmouthshire is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Monmouthshire are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Monmouthshire you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Monmouthshire may determine 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.
