Future Climate Info , the Innovative environmental data provider, has today launched a new environmental risk report dedicated to the specific needs of retailers and small businesses.
Until now, Commercial property lawyers have had to purchase large, frequently over complex data reports that covered an often unnecessary wide area that would not be relevant for the footprint and immediate area for most retail and small business locations.
Priced at just £75 plus VAT, the new FCI Retail Report  is for smaller commercial property transactions with continued existing use (not redevelopment). It includes contaminated land, flooding and ground stability datasets, as well as FCI partner Earthsense’s unique national Air Quality dataset, MappAir.
It addresses retail and small business needs through:
- A professional opinion on the contaminated land risk and a risk rating for potential subsidence
- An assessment of flood risk, including likelihood of impact on obtaining insurance.
- Air Quality ratings that could have affect shoppers and employees
And offers exceptional reliance and value including as standard:
- A £5million professional indemnity cover
- A £100,000 6 year remediation warranty cover for passed reports
“Small businesses need certainty and security to be able to thrive. There are enough economic headwinds in the market right now, whether from Brexit or online competition affecting the High Street“ said Geoff Offen, Managing Director, Future Climate Info.
“Business owners want to quickly and easily identify relevant environmental matters that could interrupt business continuity like subsidence and flood risk that could have a direct impact on them and not in the general area.
This new report shows FCI leading the way once again: delivering what this market segment wants. Better value in terms of data, opinion and reliance, but also highly price competitive – avoiding the need to pay more when you don’t need to.
We want to end the “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to commercial environmental reports.”
In addition FCI have enhanced the existing Commercial Report  for larger property transactions with clearer mapping, aerial photography and symbols, including a broader section on site setting including ecology and vulnerability.
The new and enhanced reports will be available from today. Commercial conveyancers can also obtain them from any of the leading commercial property search resellers .
