Our commercial products
The higher value of commercial property means transactions come with higher risks. So getting accurate, in-depth due diligence searches is crucial to your commercial property conveyancing obligations.
The good news is our partnership with National Land Information Services (NLIS) and the other key providers means we take care of all your client’s property search needs. You get some of the quickest turnaround times on them too. What’s more, our discounted search packs offer a simple, cost-effective solution.
Our up-to-the-minute technology also makes ordering easy, by suggesting searches relevant to each commercial property. We’ll offer a flood search if the property is in a flood-prone area, for example. We also provide expected delivery times for every search. Plus, once you’ve placed an order, your very own online dashboard shows you when you can expect each one to arrive.
Drainage and Water
Find out whether a commercial property is connected to mains water, mains drainage and surface water drainage. As an official provider of the CommercialDW Drainage & Water Enquiry, we're the experts.
As the legal documents that define the boundary of a commercial property and prove the seller’s ownership, our Land Registry searches ensure that the Deeds are in order.
Through our NLIS licence we provide electronic access to official Local Authority searches. They include anything from entries on the Local Land Charges Register through to more detailed things, such as public rights of way.
Environmental and Flooding
These searches are commonly used to look at the risk of contaminated land, helping you satisfy the requirements of the Law Society’s practice note on contaminated land and flooding. Crucially, they also look at whether potential flood risk exists.
Utilities and Telecoms
Understand the location of utility and telecom assets, plus the consequent obligations that may affect a commercial property. They range from comprehensive searches to company specific searches.
Energy and Transport
Plans from any number of the UK’s energy and infrastructure initiatives could affect the value of a commercial property. Common examples are the development of wind turbines, or the HS2 line.
Planning and Neighbourhood
These searches provide commercial property buyers with an insight into the area’s local development framework and planning applications. In addition, useful information about the neighbourhood, such as demographics and crime, is included.
Geology and Mining
Some commercial properties sit in areas where mining and mineral extraction has previously taken place and currently takes place. So these searches enable purchasers to assess the possible impact of such activities on a new property.
As a law firm you sometimes want the peace of mind that you are representing a credible organisation when involved in commercial property transactions. That’s where our company searches come in.
