What are property searches and why are they needed?
Property searches are reports that reveal any potential risks related to a property being purchased such as planning, contaminated land, coal mining and subsidence amongst others. They can also reveal any specific charges placed on a property by the Local Authority. They are used by solicitors and property purchasers to assist in making a decision about the purchase of a new property.
What are Regulated and Official Searches?
Official searches are completed by the Local Authority within which the property resides, they contain official data And are compiled by Land Charges officers within the Local Authority.
Regulated searches are compiled by our professional and highly trained search agents. We collect data from the Local Authority and compile into the required format to meet the requirements of our regulatory bodies. All agents have vast experience of the local property market and receive ongoing training to ensure high levels of service are constantly delivered.
Why regulated searches and not official?
Our regulated searches are compiled using “official data” from the local authority to give you peace of mind that all data is accurate and up to date at point of order. With much quicker turnaround times and lower costs than official local searches it makes sense to use our regulated products.
