I am buying a property without a mortgage in Ditchling. I have lived for the previous dozen years in Ditchling. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Ditchling conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house one day, it may be of relevance to your future purchaser what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still reveal adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Ditchling will provide you some practical advice here.
