Environmental search

This search surveys past uses of the land you’re thinking of buying, and land in its proximity, to see whether there’s a chance of contaminated land being an issue (for example, through previous industrial or agricultural use). This search is especially beneficial where the property under assessment is a new-build, particularly where it might have been built on a former 'brown-field' site.

It’s important to note that this isn’t a physical inspection, but a review of existing records connected to the property you are planning to buy.

Your In-Deed quote will include an environmental search as standard, which will show up any issues that might exist with contaminated land. Want to learn more from In-Deed? Call our waiting team now on 0800 038 6886.
