Property searches are enquiries made to the local authority (Stanley council) that will discover additional information about a property or land you’re looking to buy. Property searches check different aspects that may negatively impact the properties value. The searches will reveal the quality of the ground, check for flood risks, drain access, rights of access and if planning permission can be granted for further land development.

Stanley is a former colliery town and civil parish in County Durham, England. Centred on a hilltop between Chester-le-Street and Consett, the town lies south west of Gateshead.
Stanley was formerly divided into three distinct settlements – the main town of West Stanley and the mining villages of East Stanley and South Stanley. Through a process of gradual expansion, these have become amalgamated into one town, with East and South Stanley no longer officially used as town names (although they are still recognised colloquially).
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?.
