What are searches, and how do they differ from a survey?
Searches are a set of enquiries carried out by your surveyor to various authorities such as the local council, HM Land Registry, etc., and focuses on the impact of the local area on your potential enjoyment of living at the property, while a survey (a HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey) is focused on the structural integrity of the home and its permanent outbuildings and constructions.
While each may throw up similar issues (such as missing planning consents or boundary issues), they are very different and achieve very different purposes.

Is it hard to sell a property located in a conservation area?
A conservation area is designated and managed by the local authority to ensure the unique nature of the location is maintained by placing restrictions on changes to the buildings, street furniture and green spaces to protect the architectural or historical interest of everything within the conservation area boundary.
Because of this resistance to change, this usually means homes in conservation areas are more attractive to buyers, and, as such, there may be a premium to pay over properties outside such areas. Because of the attraction of such property, they will usually sell well and quickly. However, there will need to be greater checks by the buyer’s solicitor to verify that your property conforms to the conservation area restrictions, which may add extra time to the duration of the conveyancing.
