Residential Searches...

SafeMove provide the complete range of nationwide searches that you may need as part of the residential conveyancing process. 

Local Authority (Personal)

The search will make you aware of outstanding financial claims or restrictions such as tree preservation orders, conditions imposed on planning permissions, conservation areas, legal agreements and listed buildings.

The search will also make you aware of any planning applications that may affect the property in the future, such as any new roads being proposed across the end of your property.

Another important question answered by the Local Authority Search is, Is the road adopted? If the road is not adopted the implications and practicalities of this need to be considered.


This search is completed by our suppliers who search the local authority records and databases.
