What type of local environmental checks in respect to the risk of possible flooding in the Staffordshire area will a conveyancing solicitor in Stafford conduct?

A key step in the legal due diligence process of buying a property involves a solicitor conducting property conveyancing searches that give detail on the Stafford flood risk area. A substantially more detailed flood history/risk search, such as the Landmark search, may be advocated by your Stafford property solicitor if in the event that the initial searches show that there is any risk of flooding.
