Conveyancing Property Searches in Hartlepool
When you are buying a home in Hartlepool, your chosen conveyancer likely will advise that you have property searches. Property searches are checks made to the local authority (Hartlepool council) that can discover additional information about the property or land you plan to purchase. Property searches check multiple aspects that might negatively impact the properties value. The results will check the quality of the ground, check for flooding risk, drain access, rights of access and whether planning permission can be approved for further development. The property searches must be carried out and approved before the exchange contracts. Whenever you’re remortgaging, lenders won’t ask for searches done.
