A comprehensive and quality checked search
The Law Society’s CON29DW Enquiry protects consumers by highlighting problems and legal issues that could limit future development.
The teams who provide the Enquiry are trained to expertly interpret water company records. One team was contacted by a solicitor who had acquired a personal search indicating that a public sewer went through their client’s prospective property. A Law Society CON29DW Enquiry was ordered, and as part of quality checking raised a concern around the location and the size of the sewer. The solicitor was contacted immediately and a survey was carried out within three days. This confirmed the specific location of the sewer below a walkway to the side of the property and that the extension the homeowners wanted could go ahead.
