OneSearch Direct celebrates 10th Birthday of drainage and water report with over 250k sold

OneSearch Direct, the largest local search data company in the UK, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of OneSearch DW, its proprietary Drainage & Water search, having surpassed over a quarter of a million sales. To mark this milestone, OneSearch is giving away 10 antique washed willow luxury picnic hampers in a special prize draw.

Launched in 2010, OneSearch DW has become a key report in residential and commercial transactions. A pioneer of the ‘traffic light’ (green, amber, red) alert system, the report is used by a growing number of solicitors to identify the connection status of the Mains Water, Foul Sewer and Surface Water Sewer of clients’ properties, and recognises instantly if any aspect of the search results requires further attention. The addition of insurance for unavailable data, provided by Stewart Title Ltd, has made OneSearch DW an even more comprehensive alternative to the CON29DW.


Liz Jarvis, Managing Director, OneSearch Direct, comments:

“It gives me great pride to witness the growth of OneSearch DW as it successfully navigates a somewhat tempestuous decade in the housing market. As with all OneSearch products, feedback from end users, colleagues and the industry as a whole has been instrumental in our refinements, and I would like to thank everyone who played a part in making OneSearch DW what it is today. This collaborative approach led to our biggest enhancement in 2017 with the addition of a Stewart Title insurance policy to cover unavailable data. Volumes have skyrocketed ever since, with over 100,000 sold, which demonstrates the true value of listening to our market.

“It is fitting to celebrate OneSearch DW’s 10th anniversary by reaching another milestone of surpassing 250,000 searches. It’s clear that conveyancers recognise the value of OneSearch DW and they have become a standard part of many search bundles.

“We are optimistic about the future of OneSearch DW, and wanted to create a special giveaway prize with a similar theme. At OneSearch, we all agree that we’re most looking forward to spending time with much missed friends and family in the near future, and what better way to do that than with a lovely picnic?”

To mark the occasion, OneSearch Direct is giving away 10 antique washed willow luxury picnic hampers. The prize draw is free to enter, with winners announced Wednesday 1st July. Entry details can be found here. No purchase necessary.
