A number of search prices are increasing throughout January and February. These include the majority of official local authority searches, ChancelCheck, and most Landmark, Groundsure and Argyll environmental searches.
The majority of these prices are effective immediately. Landmark and Argyll searches will be increasing from Tuesday 8th February.
For those authorities within the Severn Trent region with an admin waiver, they will continue to receive this.
