What is a Local Search?


A search submitted to the local authority that asks a considerable number of questions about a property and its surroundings including, for example, information on any planning permission(s), whether the adjoining roadway is maintainable at public expense or any local land charges affecting the property. Your conveyancing lawyers will usually conduct a local search as part of their work researching the property that you are planning to purchase.
