I am buying a house for cash in Mobberley. I have been residing for the last dozen years in Mobberley. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Mobberley conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. Do consider; if you are going to dispose of the house one day, it will be of relevance to your prospective purchaser what the searches determine. Sometimes premises with day to day issues can still show up unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Mobberley should provide you some practical guidance concerning this.
