Local search

Viewing properties

We have to do a local authority search in every property purchase in UK and Wales.
The exception is where the client is purchasing for cash and can elect to not have this search carried out. In this case they buy the property subject to anything that would have been revealed in the search.
The search is a list of questions asked of various departments of the Council such as planning, building control or roads.
Those departments may be housed in different parts of the building or different buildings.
A local search can be carried out by the Council or by a personal search company who employs a person to visit the council to access the information or accesses the information electronically via the Council’s databases.
The local search will only reveal results that affect the land or property you are buying and not the local vicinty. In this way the name “local” search can be misleading.
We will advise you of any issues in relation to the property and as necessary will offer solutions or carry out further investigations where appropriate.
Any questions please fee free to email me at msslade@fidler.co.uk.
