Order your Search Pack now
By ordering your Search Pack as you go to the market, you can significantly shorten the time taken for your sale to go through.
The cost of these Searches may be negotiated with your buyers, if you so wish, given that Searches are Property Specific and NOT Client Specific. This negotiation would need to take place within 6 months of the Searches being completed as they are considered to be valid for that period of time.
After the 6 month period the buyers conveyancer has the option to re-commission or indemnify as they see fit.
