Our residential products
Our partnership with the National Land Information Service (NLIS) and other market-leading suppliers means we take care of all your property search needs. You get some of the quickest turnaround times on them too. What’s more, we offer discounted search packs which save your clients money.
Our up-to-the-minute technology also makes ordering easy, by suggesting searches relevant to each individual property. We’ll suggest a flood search if a new home is in a flood-prone area, for example. We also provide expected delivery times for searches. 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 new home is connected to mains water, mains drainage and surface water drainage. As an official provider of the Law Society’s CON29DW Drainage & Water Enquiry, we’re the experts.
As the legal documents that define the boundary of a property, as well as prove the seller’s ownership, our Land Registry searches ensure that all 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 details like public rights of way.
Environmental and Flooding
These searches identify the potential risk of contaminated land, helping you satisfy the Law Society's Practice Note on contaminated land. Crucially, they also look at whether potential flood risk exists.
Find out whether a new home is burdened with the medieval law that leaves some owners with unexpected obligations – such as those around repairs to the local parish church building.
Utilities and Telecoms
Understand the location of utility and telecom assets, plus the consequent obligations that may affect a home buyer. They range from comprehensive to company specific searches.
Energy and Transport
Plans from any number of the UK’s energy and infrastructure initiatives could affect the enjoyment (and value) of a property. Common examples are the development of wind turbines, or the proposed HS2 line.
Planning and Neighbourhood
These searches provide home buyers with an insight into the area’s local development framework and planning applications. In addition, useful information about the neighbourhood, like demographics, education and crime, is included.
Geology and Mining
Some properties sit in areas where mining and mineral extraction has previously taken place and currently takes place. So these searches enable owners-to-be to assess the possible impact of such activities on their new home.
As a law firm you sometimes want the peace of mind that you are representing a client whose background you are comfortable with. That’s where our range of company searches comes in.
