Conveyancing Searches

Commercial Searches

Our range of commercial conveyancing searches identifies all the risks that may affect the value and use of a commercial property or development site.

Local Authority

A Local Authority search provides accurate and up-to-date information based on a Local Authority’s records of issues affecting a commercial property or larger piece of land, including details on planning proposals, traffic schemes, conservation areas and compulsory purchase orders.

It has two forms, the Con29 enquiries form (Part 1) and the LLC1 (local land charges) form, plus the option to order questions from the Con29 Part 2.  Part 2 enquiries include issues such as food safety notices and hazardous substance consents, and are charged per question.

Extreme weather events have shown that flooding isn’t just restricted to those properties that are close to the river or sea. A flood report is essential before deciding whether to go ahead with a commercial property development site purchase.

If a flood risk is identified the buyer may find it difficult to purchase insurance, or find that the premiums are much higher than expected.
