I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Shenstone. Almost all the properties are already occupied. Do I need carry out the local searches for my conveyancing in Shenstone?
Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your lender will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Shenstone conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should have the searches done, 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 you will need to switch to another solicitor for your conveyancing in Shenstone.
