Your Local Search solution in Grantham!

Posted: 28/04/2015

According to estate agents in Grantham, they are waiting up to ten weeks for a local search to be completed by South Kesteven District Council. This is holding up the Conveyancing process in the town of Grantham and all other towns that have their Local Authority as South Kesteven. The long delays are being caused by the council taking so long to complete a Local Search which is slowing down the chain of house sales and purchases which can cause additional fees to be incurred and a lot of unnecessary anxiety for the homeowners, homebuyers, solicitors and estate agents. Like home buying and selling isn’t stressful enough!!

If you are fed up waiting for a Local Search to be returned from South Kesteven District Council then have no fear, Pali are here! We can return a Personal Local Authority Search between 10 to 15 working days.

All our Local Searches are Search Code compliant, display the Search Code logo, and are backed by an individual £2m Search Warranty including run-off cover. Pali are regularly audited by the Property Codes Compliance Board (PCCB) and are members of CoPSO and IPSA.

The council are blaming their slow turnaround times on an increase of work load but have stated that extra staff have been employed to try and tackle the problem.

If you would like to order a Personal Local Search produced by Pali then you will received a report that contains information compiled by a member of Pali examining the council records. The report provides environmental information on a property such as planning applications, building regulations, traffic schemes, contaminated land, radon gas and Local Land Charges.
