What is a Local Authority Search?

In the event that you require any additional information or clarification from ourselves, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team.

A Local Authority Search is an application to the Local Authority for a certificate containing certain information about a property. This will be handled by the person appointed to carry out the conveyancing. The search checks with the Local Authority as to whether any new developments are planned in the vicinity of the property, e.g a new motorway, or anything else immediately adjacent to the property. The search will also check the water drainage systems and other social infrastructure. Also highlighted are any planning restrictions which may effect plans to extend or renovate the property. It is also useful to check nearby buildings or empty land to establish whether any planning permission has been granted for new developments. Local Authority searches can take anything from 2 weeks up to ten weeks to complete.
