SearchFlow, the UK’s leading property search business, has announced the launch of its New Build service to facilitate quicker conveyancing for new build properties and developments.

Conveyancing for new builds is often arduous, and can be complicated where plots of land are not yet mapped nor postcodes allocated. With annual housing starts up 23% in 2013 compared with the year before and schemes such as Help To Buy increasing consumers’ confidence, new builds are likely to be a focus for developers throughout 2014. SearchFlow’s expertise in New Build search orders stems from experience fulfilling the NHBC New Build Home Information Pack orders, enabling all the major developers to proceed quickly to marketing their properties.

The New Build service is available to property professionals in both residential and commercial markets, from a single plot to large developments. A specialist team at SearchFlow manages the various new build stages including mapping, address validation and the relevant property searches. Clients can track the status of their New Build search orders service using SearchFlow’s online Portfolio Monitor, as well as being kept up to date with results via email.

Perran Moon, Marketing Director of SearchFlow comments: “New builds have historically caused headaches for conveyancers, with mapping and postcode issues being unresolved and often delaying transactions. It’s the right time for us to launch this new support platform so that legal property professionals are better able to manage their workflow, enabling them to meet increased demand for new build conveyancing.

The BHS experience before the House of Commons’ work and pensions committee and business, innovation and skills committee shows that firms need to think beyond AML obligations.
