Searches

When purchasing a property it is important to ensure you have all the relevant information you need to make an informed decision. Property searches or conveyancing searches can reveal vital information about a property or its surrounding area that can affect your decision to purchase.

As a part of the conveyancing process your solicitor will obtain a variety of property searches in order to discover any potential unpleasant eventualities that may affect how you feel about the property or affect the future use of the property. Identifying potential issues from the start can protect you from unexpected costs in the future.

Certain types of issues discovered through property searches can be used to renegotiate an offer made on the property but it can also affect the cost of your insurance and in some cases cause a lender to withdraw their mortgage offer.
