Home » Products » Q&As » What are property searches?

Conveyancing property searches are reports that reveal if there are any risks to a property being purchased in relation to issues like contaminated land, flooding, planning, mining or subsidence, and more.

A local authority search, for example, will provide information about the property being a listed building, if it is in a conservation area, if building regulations have been approved for any extensions and if any land within the property is required for public use and other things.

Property searches help to protect homebuyers by providing them with enough information to make an informed decision about continuing with the purchase of their property.
