I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years old) in Upminster Bridge. Almost all the appartments have already been disposed of. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Upminster Bridge?
If you getting a mortgage, your mortgage company will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Upminster Bridge conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. 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 may need to instruct a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Upminster Bridge.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Principality, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Principality conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
About to purchase house in Upminster Bridge. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Upminster Bridge conveyancing practitioner is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Upminster Bridge. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Upminster Bridge - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
