Do I need a patentability search before filing?

Yes and no. There is no legal requirement to conduct a patentability search prior to filing a patent application. Indeed, if you are just filing a simple provisional patent application, it might be best to just file without a search. On the other hand, it is a very good idea to conduct a good patentability search before investing very much in the way of resources in R&D or patenting. If your idea is not broadly patentable, it is probably best to move on to another idea. The sooner you find that out, the better.
