Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she has a professional duty to do this.

Sometimes premises with day to day issues can still show up unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Abergavenny will provide you some helpful guidance in this regard.
