I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Clapton. The vast majority the appartments are already occupied. Is it really necessary to order local searches as part of conveyancing in Clapton?
You are taking a significant risk in failing carrying out Clapton 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.
