    What to Expect From Conveyancing Searches in Slough?

    Your conveyancer will have to conduct conveyancing searches. These will ensure that there are no environmental threats to the property. The majority of this information is held by the local authority, in this case, Slough Borough Council.

    According to Slough Borough Council, Slough experiences flooding from a range of sources. These include surface water flooding, sewer flooding, and groundwater flooding. River flooding (fluvial) is also a concern, which is also exasperated by heavy rainfall. The waterways which run through Slough include the Jubilee River.

    There is evidence of subsidence concerns in Slough and the surrounding area. Although not as high as nearby London, it is still an element of your searches that you will need to be aware of.

    A heat map of Radon Gas affected areas from Public Health England revealed very low levels of Radon Gas in Slough and much of the surrounding area. Readings were higher in nearby Windsor and also in areas North of Slough, but the borough itself showed very small amounts.
