    How Long Does Conveyancing Take in Walsall?

    What to Expect From Conveyancing Searches in Walsall?

    The conveyancing searches are an important part of the conveyancing process. They will detect any defects in the property and surrounding area. These searches include the Environmental Search, Water & Drainage Search, and the full Local Authority Search. They will look into various aspects including flooding, subsidence, and radon gas levels.

    Walsall has a high risk of river flooding due to the River Tame that runs through the town. There is a medium risk of surface flooding in certain areas. This means that those looking at properties near the river should take note when reading the report.

    Subsidence does not appear to be a major problem in Walsall. Subsidence occurs due to the high levels of clay in the soil which is then combined with pressure from high populations and buildings. This means that cities are most susceptible to subsidence. However, always read your report just in case.

    Walsall has high radon gas levels with some areas boasting levels as high as 5-10%. Radon gas is an odourless and colourless gas that can have dangerous effects when inhaled over a long period of time. This means that it is important to ensure that the property is not in one of these areas.
