Conveyancing Property Searches for Yate
If you’re buying a property in Yate, your conveyancing solicitor likely will recommend that you carry out property searches. Property searches are checks made to the local authority (Yate council) that can discover additional information about the property or land you’re looking to buy. Property searches check different aspects that may negatively affect the houses value. The searches will reveal the quality of the ground, check for flooding risk, drain access, access rights and whether planning permission can be approved for future development. The property searches should be completed and granted approval before the exchange contracts. When remortgaging, lenders don’t normally require searches done.

Yate is a commuter town and civil parish in South Gloucestershire, England, at the southwest extremity of the Cotswold Hills, 11 miles (17.7 km) northeast of Bristol city centre. Yate developed from a village into a sizable town from the 1960s onwards, partly as an overspill or commuter town for the city of Bristol. Although not a new town in the official sense, Yate took on many of the characteristics of one. At the 2011 census the population was 21,603. The town of Chipping Sodbury (population 5,045) is contiguous with Yate to the east. In addition, a large southern section of the built-up area spills over into the parish of Dodington (population 8,206), and so the total population of Yate’s urban area is now approaching 35,000.
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?.
