I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Stoke Newington. The vast majority the flats are already sold. Do I need carry out the local searches as part of conveyancing in Stoke Newington?
If you are acquiring a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your lender will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Stoke Newington conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, 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 may need to instruct a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Stoke Newington.

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to locate the lessor.
