If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage, your bank will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Potters Bar conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. 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 demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or it may be necessary to find a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Potters Bar.
