What does my solicitor do with my conveyancing searches?
Once we are in receipt of your conveyancing searches, your conveyancing solicitor will conduct a thorough and extensive review of the results. We then prepare a detailed report to you, commenting on the various matters revealed. The report takes each search involved, and sets out the position outlined within the search.
The report is then sent out to you, where you have your own opportunity to review the results, in conjunction with our report to you. Following on from this, we require your own comments, confirming how you wish to proceed with the matter. For example, if the results of the environmental search have revealed a high risk of flooding at the property, you may wish to have further investigation carried out in this regard, via a specific flood risk search, which we can assist you with.
In addition, in all likelihood, the results of the searches will require your conveyancing solicitor to raise further enquiries with the seller’s solicitor. In many cases, the searches can raise issues which require the seller to clarify on. For example, the searches reveal that the property is not connected to the mains sewers, in which case, we would require the seller to clarify the position. This brings about the need for specific enquiries to be raised in order to provide important information to assist your purchase.
