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.”

Andrew Lloyd 2017

Over the past 20 years, nearly all aspects of our financial lives have migrated online, from tax returns to banking. Yet arguably the most important and protracted financial process in our lives has remained doggedly devoted to the paper based world. A single signature in Rotherhithe, south-east London, on 4 April, however, may have just lit the touch paper for transforming this process. By signing the UK’s first ever digital mortgage through the government’s new “sign your mortgage deed” service, a signal was sent that the home-buying process is finally on course to be digitised, simplified and streamlined.
