Do I need to carry out searches when buying or leasing a property?

We would always strongly recommend carrying out the full range of searches when either purchasing or leasing a property. In fact, if you are obtaining bank finance then it is mandatory.

The most common search is the local search and this costs approximately �100 -�200 depending on the local authority. There are a range of other searches that we would also recommend including coal, drainage, chancel and environmental searches to name but a few. Our team of experts will explain in detail which searches are relevant to your transaction and in many cases the searches can be submitted online so the transaction is not delayed.
