Property searches and advice
We recommend anyone who takes out a new lease to have searches done which show any other interests in the property and important information such as whether the property can be accessed from the public highway, whether it is connected to a public sewer and potential problems such as planning and environmental issues. This is essential for any medium or high value lease.
These searches will usually comprise:
- Local Authority Search
- Water and Drainage Search
- Environmental Search
- Mining Searches
- Chancel Check
In addition to carrying out the searches, we then create a Search Report which contains our advice about your legal position in light of the results. It can also be provided to any lender or other backer.
