I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (seven years old) in Putney. 95% of the properties are already sold. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Putney?
You would be opening yourself up to an unnecessary risk in not carrying out Putney 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 strongly advise in the strongest possible terms that you have them. If accelerating the process and expenses are primary issues you should consider with your solicitor about the viability of search insurance

Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Putney.
