We are planning to buy a property, is it necessary that searches are ordered?


Conveyancing searches are enquiries raised by your conveyancing solicitor via one of several specific authorities, such as an environmental search. These are not surveys and will not identify structural issues like subsidence.


Why does the conveyancing work require months? Isn't it just filing paperwork?


The legal work required to buy or sell a property will occasionally be exposed to significant delays even in ideal circumstances. In some cases, the causes are out of a lawyer's control. Homeward Legal understand that these can cause considerable stress and work hard to minimise the effect of these delays whenever possible by, for example, ordering searches as early as possible. Common delays may include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.
