I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (five years old) in North Newbald. The vast majority the flats have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in North Newbald?

There are hundreds search providers conducting North Newbald conveyancing searches, as well direct from the local authority.

My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in North Newbald and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated.
