If you are buying a property with the assistance of a loan, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then St Austell conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will 'advise', perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. 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 choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or you will need to swap to an alternative solicitor for your conveyancing in St Austell.

Any further balance that is due should be transferred a couple of days ahead of the day of completion.
