The rule in English property law, meaning quite literally “buyer beware”. This rule puts the responsibility clearly on the buyer of any house or land to make the necessary enquiries and investigations. That means a survey, the best you can afford, to reveal any structural or build related problems, as well as checks by qualified gas and/or electrical specialists. However it doesn’t stop there, any responsible buyer will also give serious consideration to the conveyancing searches they instruct their Solicitor to carry out on their behalf.

We offer a full range of extensive conveyancing searches at competitive prices, modified for the geographical area you are buying in. One search we strongly recommend, that many of our competitors do not, is an Energy and Infrastructure Search which deals with the contentious issue of “tracking”. This search reveals areas where licenses to explore have been granted and also to to drill. The real possibility of fracking is particularly wide spread in Lincolnshire, but how close to your dream home?!
