You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook.

Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Hamworthy conveyancing searches.
