K15 Search: Another way of describing a full Land Charges Search which is done on an unregistered title. Where we act for the seller, it is our client’s name that we search against. The search is done against our customer to discover whether there is a second charge which exists and which the client may have forgotten to tell us about. Where we act for the buyer, it is the sellers, name or names that will be searched against for similar reasons. The search can be done either through the post or over the telephone or on-line. 

K16 Search: Another way of describing a Bankruptcy Search. Where we act on a purchase, we do these searches against our client to find out whether there are any bankruptcy entries registered in their name that would prevent then from obtaining mortgage finance on a property they are buying. The search can be done either through the post or over the telephone or on-line.
