Will a Horsham solicitor report on the potential risk of local flooding around Horsham?
A key component in the legal procedure involves the lawyer applying for environmental searches that give certain details with regard to risk of flooding in Horsham. A substantially more thorough conveyancing search, for instance the Landmark search, may possibly be advocated by a solicitor in Horsham if the results of the initial searches reveal a flood risk.
Is a Local Authority search a fee or a disbursement?
A good quote will clearly list all fees and disbursements. This charge is a disbursement not a fee, meaning the conveyancer passes on the charge at cost.
Are the doctors/dentists/schools oversubscribed in the area I want to move to?
Although your conveyancing solicitor may have some personal knowledge of these critical factors, they are not part of the conveyancing process, so will not form part of the contract.
If aspects such as how likely you’ll get into a surgery or school are important to you, it is worth factoring this in at an early stage when you are researching the areas into which you want to move. You can also glean some facts from the estate agent representing properties where you want to move, too. You might also like to contact the surgeries or schools for further information.

What do 'conveyancing searches' mean?
Conveyancing searches are a commonly-used bundle of enquiries ordered by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor through particular organisations. These cannot be used in place of a survey and will not identify structural issues like settlement.
