eight-week wait for property search is not efficient
4:04pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Letters
JANE Scott’s statement that “we have reduced the back office costs and are a leaner and more efficient authority” is a complete joke.
Is having to wait eight weeks for a property search “efficient”?
No other local authority in the UK has this delay, with some able to turn these searches around in 24 to 48 hours and a majority within seven days.
We are being held to ransom by the council we voted for - after all it’s not as though we can go elsewhere to obtain this information.
The council will continue to receive this income, however long they take to process the searches, and clearly have little regard to how this delay is affecting the lives of Wiltshire residents trying to move house.
