Enquiries regarding searches on Ground Leases are usually received by solicitors acting for potential purchasers and remortgaging companies.

The enquiries relate to:

  • Ground Rents
  • Breaches of Covenants
  • Notice of Assignments
  • Building Insurance
  • Service Charges

There are two levels of enquiry, which demand different fees for the provision of information:

If information can be provided from office held records, then the fee is £45.83 plus VAT.

If the enquiry requires a breach of covenant inspection of the property, this requires a site visit and the fee is £62.50 plus VAT.
