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.”

Bitcoin: The new frontier or the next bubble?

Joe Smith Saunderson House

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency – a digital currency that uses cryptographic techniques to regulate the generation of units and to verify the transfer of funds. It is largely anonymous and unregulated, and underpinned by a digital ledger technology known as blockchain. In terms of the market, there is a limit of 21m Bitcoin that can ever be created. It is very narrowly held, with an estimated 40% of Bitcoin held by just 1,000 ‘investors’ and only a third having been traded in the last year. However, there are also a number of synthetic products through which one can gain access to Bitcoin, including contracts for difference, ETFs (exchange-traded funds) and, as of December, exchange-traded futures.
