I am need of leasehold conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years old) in Whetstone. The vast majority the appartments have already been sold. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Whetstone?
Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your mortgage company will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Whetstone conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer, will 'advise', perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, 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 insist 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 Whetstone.

I am purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Whetstone. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are allowed?
Your solicitor should check the deeds as conveyancing in Whetstone can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain alterations or need the consent of a 3rd party.

It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
