    What to Expect From Conveyancing Searches in Southall?

    An essential part of the conveyancing process includes the conveyancing searches arranged by your conveyancer. These searches provide crucial information about the property and surrounding land.

    In Southall, Ealing Council is a lead local flood authority under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010. They are responsible for coordinating the management of flood risk from various sources across the borough, including in and around Southall.

    The borough of Ealing has reduced areas for storing water, meaning the local drainage network can become overwhelmed during heavy rainfall and result in flooding.

    Geobear's Subsidence Map shows that Southall and the wider area of Ealing have high levels of subsidence, which is something to be aware of. Consult your conveyancer if you are concerned. That said, subsidence levels are lower than in Central London.

    Radon Gas in the borough and across Southall specifically are relatively low and should not be an issue for anyone looking to purchase a home in the area.
