In regards to the extensive flooding in Sept 2012 in North West England we are worried that environmental searches may not be sufficient?
Conveyancing searches handled by your property lawyer in Sandbach will include the far more rigorous search (Landmark) if the risk is deemed significant.
If you are nervous you can contact a future neighbour or nearby Cheshire flood damage business, such as Williamson S R & Sons Ltd, 437 Crewe Rd, Winterley, Sandbach, CW11 4RF Tel: 01270 762558.
The vendor appears to have fitted out of place windows on the flat in Sandbach which I think might contravene nearby conservation area criteria
Your property lawyer will always find out if the property is within a designated conservation area, and if so, whether any alterations have the requisite consents from the Cheshire East council.

These searches are a typical set of queries raised by the purchaser's conveyancing solicitor with several authorities, for example a limestone search. Searches are very useful whether buying with a mortgage or not, but deal with issues with the property's title.
