Conveyancing Property Searches for Coleford
When you are buying a property in Coleford, your instructed conveyancer will probably advise that you have property searches. Conveyancing property searches are enquiries made to the local authority (Coleford council) that might find important information about a property or land you plan to purchase. Property searches check different aspects that may negatively impact the houses value. The searches will check the quality of the ground, check for flood risks, drain access, access rights and whether planning permission can be granted for future property development. The searches must be carried out and granted approval before the exchange contracts. If you plan on remortgaging, lenders will not need searches made.
