Are property searches compulsory?

Home » Products » Q&As » Are property searches compulsory?

We would always strongly recommend carrying out property searches before a purchase, although it is not compulsory to do so. Any respectable property solicitor or conveyancer would also support this claim, not to mention the risk and compliance regulations that they are bound by to guarantee homebuyers are fully aware of any risks to the property they are purchasing to ensure they are informed and still happy to go ahead with the transaction.

Homebuyers may also need to check the terms of their mortgage to determine if certain property searches are compulsory.
