Search results will check the quality of the ground, check for flood risks, drain access, rights of access and whether planning permission can be approved for further property development. The property searches must be carried out and granted approval before the exchange contracts. Whenever you’re remortgaging, mortgage lender won’t require searches done.

Launceston (/ˈlɑːnstən/ LARN-stən or /ˈlɔːnstən/ LAWN-stən, locally /ˈlænsən/ LAN-sən or /ˈlɑːnsən/ LARN-sən, (Cornish: Lannstevan; (rarely spelled Lanson often as an abbreviation) is a town, ancient borough, and civil parish in east Cornwall, England, UK. It is one mile (1.6 km) west of the River Tamar, which constitutes almost the entire border between Cornwall and Devon, at its middle stage. Its gradients are generally steep particularly at a sharp south-western knoll topped by Launceston Castle.
The town centre is bypassed and is no longer physically a main thoroughfare. However, the town remains figuratively the “gateway to Cornwall”, due to having one of the two dual carriageways into the county pass directly next to the town. The other dual carriageway and alternative main point of entry is at Saltash over the Tamar Bridge and was completed in 1962.
The national average timescale for conveyancing is between 9-10 weeks. Conveyancing for simple purchase transactions can take just 4-6 weeks but a more complicated transaction can take much much longer to complete. Some transactions have been known to take over a year to complete, why? More info visit our How long does conveyancing take?.
