Searches & Due Diligence
There are many searches that can be conducted for your property. For example you may wish to see if the Roads & Maritime Services have any plans to widen a road where your house is situated or you may wish to check with the Mine Subsidence Board if the land is within a zone affected.
You can request A & T Legal perform any of the list of searches at the bottom of this page, prior to exchange as a part of your due diligence however you must instruct A & T Legal of any concerns you have and the specific searches you want so that we can request those documents within time before exchange.
Otherwise we will send you a list of available searches after exchange specific to your land for your instructions. We note that if you find out about any issues with the land after unconditional exchange, you may then wish to rescind which can be a difficult process legally especially when most contracts request that you acknowledge you have undertaken your due diligence before signing the contact so if you have any concerns about the land, please ask us to order any due diligence searches before you exchange contracts.
