Complete the planning picture with details of planning applications and potential development nearby, ensuring you are aware of any potential changes in the area that could affect the enjoyment or value of the property.
No homebuyer wants to buy a property only to find soon
afterwards that there is going to be a development in the
neighbourhood, or that developmental constraints exist, which
could severely affect their use and enjoyment of the property,
as well as its value.
Traditionally solicitors have carried out two types of enquiries to
find out about planning issues:
• A local authority search, which provides information that is
generally limited to the extent of the subject property
• A Property Information Form, which relies on the knowledge
of the seller
The Plansearch Plus report is designed to supplement the
findings of the local authority search by also looking at
development activity in the wider area.
Designed specifically for residential buyers, and their solicitors,
the report will provide key information so that clients can make
informed decisions when buying a property.
As part of your due diligence, ordering a Plansearch Plus report
demonstrates you have undertaken all practicable steps to
reasonably identify information that the client would want to know.
In addition to the comprehensive data, this report includes:
• Large aerial photograph
• Comprehensive terms and conditions
• Turnaround time of one working day
Automatic reliance by most parties involved in a property transaction including seller, buyer, lender and their professional advisors.
