OneSearch200OneSearch Direct, one of the nation’s leading providers of property search information, has today announced that it has achieved record months for regulated drainage & water and environmental reports in March and April.

Don Belcher, head of channel at OneSearch Direct, explains:  “To put these record performances in context, this reflects growth of 39.4% for regulated drainage & water searches over the same two month period last year.  For environmental reports, we are 14% ahead of the same two months of 2014.  Conveyancers now recognise the value of these searches and they have become a standard part of the conveyancing search pack.

“Our reports are specifically designed so that all the key information is immediately visible and easily accessible.  A pioneer of the ‘traffic light’ (green, amber, red) system, we highlight any potential issues upfront, in particular pointing out the connection status of such assets as drainage, and sewer pipes.  OneSearch reports help busy conveyancing professionals recognise instantly if any aspect of the search results requires further attention.  In addition, all our searches are backed by our comprehensive PI insurance guarantee for complete peace-of-mind.

“This year we are celebrating 25 years in business,” continues Belcher.  “The record sales we are achieving, together with the backing of Souter Investments, signal an exciting future for OneSearch Direct.”

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
