Conveyancing Property Searches for Willington
If you are buying a property in Willington, your chosen conveyancer likely will advise that you carry out property searches. Conveyancing property searches are checks made to the local authority (Willington council) that can find additional information about a property or land you plan to purchase. Property searches check multiple aspects that might negatively impact the properties value. For example, they’ll check the quality of the ground, check for flood risks, drain access, rights of access and whether planning permission may be approved for further land development. The property searches should be completed and approved before the exchange contracts. When remortgaging, lenders don’t normally need property searches done.

Willington is a former-pit town in County Durham, England, in the foothills of the Pennines and near the River Wear close to Crook and Bishop Auckland.
Like many communities in the area Willington’s economy was largely based on coal mining. The closure of the colliery in 1967 therefore affected the local economy badly and, in common with many former mining communities, Willington has struggled to recover.
