Are you planning to sell your home? Or rather it’s the other way around. Maybe you are the one who is looking for a property to buy. If that is the case, you need the services of an agent who will conduct a thorough Nassau property search for you. In fact it is not the agents themselves who are making all the necessary searches. If their clients happen to be looking for a property, let’s say in Nassau, all they have to do is get in touch with a solicitor and the solicitor will make all the property searches in that particular area. What the buyer does not know are the types of searches made once the property and the location are shown to them.
There are two parts in this search, the LLC1 and the CON29. These two searches are both submitted at the same time. One cannot go without the other; therefore, if the local authorities are conducting a Nassau County property search, you will definitely find these two hand in hand. The LLC1 are searches made by the local authorities that tell you whether there are some protected trees in the area or if it is a conservation zone.
On the other hand, in the CON29, you can find a series of questions that serve as warning. It includes Proposed Tree Preservation Orders, Compulsory Purchase Orders, and Road widening proposals, Notices if there is a plan of widening the roads or bridges, and proposed enforcement action. However, it must be understood that this searches are made for Nassau property search alone.
This means that if the buyer is looking for a property outside of Nassau, then their respective authorities will conduct their own searches. As a property buyer, one may probably ask why it is important to conduct these searches. First, property owners do not give all the information to the buyer or their agent. So, for example, there are some protected trees in the nearby area, the property owner will not give this information to you. If ever they give you information, you can only expect small details but not all of it.
As a property buyer, you must make sure that all the necessary searches are made. Aside from those that were just mentioned, some other common searches consist of those conducted by the local authority. These also include environmental searches, utility searches, financial charges, repair searches, land registry searches, and other specialized searches. We have already discussed earlier about local authority searches. Let us now discuss the other searches made.
Utility searches are searches made about water infrastructures. They make sure that these were built in such a way that these don’t cause damage to the homeowner or community. In addition to water infrastructures, they all search if there is any proposal regarding electricity lines within the neighborhood. Another search they need to conduct is the environmental searches. These types of searches are made to find out if there are any existing problems within the community. One example of this is flooding. They will make all the necessary searches to find out which areas are susceptible to floods. In this way, the buyer can avoid buying properties in the areas.
Another type of search conducted is the Chancel repair searches. This type of search can help determine if there are any repairs made for the local or parish church of the community. And lastly, the land registry search. This search is being made in order to find out if the property you are buying is free from any debts or if the property is being mortgaged.
In conclusion, before you buy a property in Nassau, you need to first conduct a Nassau property search to avoid any problems in the near future. Make sure that all searches are made thoroughly and are detailed. Make sure that the person you are going to hire to conduct these searches is reliable and trustworthy. In this way, you will have peace of mind the next time you buy a property.
