Local Authority Service Update
Local Authorities alert all search providers of current turnaround times
Local Authority turnaround times remain a hot topic in the conveyancing industry. As with all search providers, we are currently experiencing some delays from a number of Local Authorities; however, we are working to ensure you are kept up-to-date and receive the quickest turnaround possible. We thank you for your patience.
What does this mean for me?
To keep your transaction moving and to assist you in accurately setting your customers’ expectations, it is recommended that you order your pre-completion searches as soon as possible to avoid potential delays.
If you require support in selecting the most suitable searches for your transaction, your account manager will be able to provide you with expert advice.
