I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (6 years built) in Walton on the Naze. The vast majority the properties have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order local searches for my conveyancing in Walton on the Naze?
If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a loan, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Walton on the Naze conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, 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 demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to switch to an alternative solicitor for your conveyancing in Walton on the Naze.
