Environmental Search

Recommended Posts


I am in the loooong process of buying my first flat. The whole block was built about 6 years ago in Surrey.

I have finally had the searches come back and a professional opinion has been enclosed advising that there is potential environmental risk. The block of flats sits where a petrol station once used to be 15 years ago.

Surely if there was a significant risk then the flats would never have been able to have been built.

As normal the "search" was done over the Internet with no visit to the property, it's strewn with mistakes and then they advise I can take out insurance with them to protect against the risk

Does anyone know will have a significant chance that the mortgage would be withdrawn?
