Local Searches

We understand you prefer the flexibility of ordering either a regulated search or a council search and that’s why we provide both services. Our regulated searches carry the PSG badge of approval, with a history of quality and efficient delivery.

Environmental & Flood

Environmental reports have evolved a lot over the last few years. As well as looking at contaminated land, specialised products now also report on issues such as flooding and ground stability, providing clients with as full a picture as possible from an environmental perspective.

Drainage and Water

A required report on any transaction, drainage and water reports highlight how water is carried to and from the property, and who is responsible for maintenance. We offer our own regulated search as an alternative to those provided by the relevant water authority.

Mining and Subsidence

The British landscape has a long history of mining for naturally occurring minerals including coal, tin and limestone. The effects left behind by this industrial heritage can have a devastating effect on the built environmental. A mining report is recommended for any transaction in a mining area.

Energy & Infrastructure

As the Government continues to call for improvements to our infrastructure and investigates alternative energy sources and travel networks to cope with an ever-growing population, it is important that home buyers are made aware of any potential issues caused by such changes to our landscape.

Risk Management and Compliance

As a conveyancer, you have a duty of care towards your clients to ensure that they are protected throughout the transaction. We provide risk management products such as Lawyer Checker to safeguard their funds, protect your reputation and provide peace of mind.
