In the absence of a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Workington conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches done, but she is duty bound to do this. Do bear in mind; if you are going to dispose of the house at a future date, it may be of importance to your future buyer what the searches determine. On occasion properties with functional issues can still reveal unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Workington will provide you some constructive advice concerning this.

You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the purchase.
