How long will my searches take?
In order to apply for the conveyancing searches, we require sight of a plan pertaining to the property. This is in order that our search providers know the exact boundaries that are being searched against, to ensure that your search results are accurate and correct. The plan is, usually, the Land Registry filed plan, provided by the seller’s solicitor, however, where we are dealing with unregistered properties, this is usually a plan taken from the latest Conveyance or Transfer of the property.
Once applied for, the results of your conveyancing searches usually take 7-10 days to come back to us. This is, of course, dependent on the various authorities being enquired against. We have an excellent working relationship with our search providers who ensure that the same are back with us as soon as is possible.
