The Quinton house being purchased is on a former industrial site. Is the soil likely to be contaminated?
There are considerable regulations to curtail soil contamination. The local authority for Quinton will be able to provide more detail on cases of contamination.
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.
