A big part of the conveyancing process is the conveyancing searches. This section tells you all about them. What they are, how and when to order them and how to interpret the results. Each search has its own guide and you'll see they are separated into Standard (should be done in every case), Regional (area specific) and Optional (not essential but often useful tools for the would be purchaser). All buyers should beware that when you buy a property, the law assumes that you have seen the information that would have been revealed by searches whether or not you have actually carried them out, so you buy the property subject to the results.
Using a conveyancer to handle your conveyancing will greatly reduce the risk to you and sometimes, particularly if you are taking out a new mortgage, you will have no choice but to instruct a conveyancer. The good news is it doesn't have to break the bank. Get a free, instant quote here. We can also help with quick easy quotes for other moving related services.

The paragraph below is part of the contract I received. Am I correct in thinking that this states that I cannot discharge myself from any previous / outstanding charges, burdens that may have been added to the deed from previous owners bad debt and that the bank can then hold me liable for the outstanding debt which was left by the previous owner? Moreover, if any previous charges doesn't apply to the new owner. then why is it stated in the contract in the first place. Why isn't the part about charges just left blank.
