I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years built) in Powys. The vast majority the properties are already sold. Do I need carry out the local searches for my conveyancing in Powys?
You are putting yourself at risk in not carrying out Powys 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 without a mortgage there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would absolutely advise in no uncertain terms that your solicitor conducts them. If timings and cost are top of your issues you should discuss with your solicitor about the options such as lack of search insurance available to you
