House Price Crash Forum

Recommended Posts

How easy is it and quick is it to do a Local authority search?   Can I submit a search ( I think it's called a Con29 myself )  or does it have to be via a solicitor?

I've seen reports in the news where someone has been in a real hurry that they've got information in less than a day! which surely is how it should be done.

The reason for asking is I'm trying to buy a 2nd house and do not want to be charge a fortune for doing something I can do myself.

Given that the amount you will save is about £100 and I suspect the house you are buying is worth over £100,000 I really don't think its worth the saving for the additional risk....

You get a solicitor to do it so if its wrong you can protect yourself by suing said solicitor.
