This is why your conveyancing solicitor will order a set of standard searches (Local Authority, Water and Drainage, Environmental, and Chancel Repair – these are also the searches requited by your mortgage lender), plus additional searches dependent on the property, recommendations from the surveyor in the survey report, and the location and history of the area.

As a consequence of the widespread flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England I am wondering if flood risk searches aren't thorough enough?
Environmental searches conducted by the Blackpool conveyancer should also include the more specialist search (Landmark) if the risk warrants it.
If you remain still apprehensive try to approach a neighbour or local Lancashire flood repair expert, e.g. Concept Solutions, 143 Cornwall Av, Blackpool, FY2 9QS Tel: 0800-037 0026.

My agent has suggested the firm of solicitors. Is it risky to use this solicitor?
Many agents will have a referral arrangement with solicitors where they refer clients. Such referrals must be compared with other local solicitors, or better-value firms found online, as an agent may choose whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the most appropriate choice.
