Can I do property searches myself?

Home » Products » Q&As » Can I do property searches myself?

Strictly speaking anyone is able to order property searches from us, although we would not recommend this if a qualified property solicitor or conveyancer is involved in the purchase of a property. Professionals working in the property industry will have a wealth of experience behind them and are also bound by strict risk and compliance rules and regulations to ensure they are fully compliant and protecting their clients.

For example, if property searches were carried out by a solicitor or conveyancer and a risk was identified after the purchase, which was detrimental to the property, the solicitor or conveyancer could be liable for any costs associated with this as they have a duty to their clients to ensure they are aware of anything that may deter them from purchasing the property.  They will of course have professional indemnity insurance cover in place to protect both yourself and them if such an unfortunate situation were to arise.
