Avista - the new residential environmental search report from Groundsure - now available

Avista is an innovative new environmental search report designed to help conveyancers manage their caseloads efficiently and effectively. 

There are many benefits to ordering this product:

  • It's the first report of its kind to include seven key environmental searches including planning, so there's no need to waste time ordering individual reports;
  • The unique Avista 'Action Alert' is a special feature that allows conveyancers to prioritise follow-up work at a glance, so that problems can be targeted before they delay the transaction process;
  • Avista reduces workload by removing unnecessary information, while allowing users to remain robust in their due diligence and;
  • The content is easy for both conveyancer and client to understand. The intuitive design also means vital information is easy to locate. 
Avista is powered by the unique Groundsure IQ engine, which analyses over 106 million data points, on contaminated land, all four major flood risks, ground stability, radon, current and planned energy features and transportation, as well as ten years of planning data – to produce each report. 

Conveyancers will also appreciate the improved accuracy and pass rates for sites: the environmental datasets are filtered using Land Registry polygons, so that only results relevant to the property are returned. 

Another of the reports key selling points is the built-in intelligence that allows the data to be filtered so that the results and next-step strategies are highlighted in an easy-to-understand way. 

“Essentially, you get all the information you need, none of the information you don’t,” says Danielle Orosa, strategic account manager at Groundsure. 

“Avista delivers more relevant results that are easier to follow through and clearly prioritised. For example, once a pass has been achieved, the customer is not burdened with unnecessary information. The Avista ‘Action Alert will simply inform the customer that there are minimal actions identified. This reduces a similar set of reports from over 100 pages to on average fewer than 20 – a huge bonus for conveyancers and clients alike.”

However, in cases where risks are identified, follow-up tasks are prioritised and detailed on a clear recommendations page, helping conveyancers manage each transaction more effectively.

Avista is the latest and most advanced of Groundsure’s residential reports. It is priced at £79 ex VAT and available to order now.
