I am buying a house for cash in Whimple. I have lived for the previous 15 years in Whimple. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of 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 home loan, then almost all of the Whimple conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are intend to sell the house one day, it will be of relevance to your prospective buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes premises with day to day issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Whimple should provide you some constructive guidance concerning this.
Should lawyers request money on account when it comes to conveyancing in Whimple?

This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is as part of the total price then this will be needed shortly prior to contracts are exchanged. The final balance that is needed will be payable a couple of days ahead of the day of completion.
