It is vital to understand the level of flood risk on a property as this affects the cost of buildings insurance. Flooding also isn’t just restricted to those properties located close to a river or the sea, so a flood report is essential before deciding to go-ahead with a property purchase.

The impact of new planning proposals on a property can be substantial. Purchasing a planning report will provide useful and important information on planning activities in the area around a property.

A planning report can detail potential changes to the neighbourhood to help prospective homeowners make the right decision about their property purchase. Having the information upfront ensures there are no nasty surprises such as a view ruined by a new development which would lower the property’s value and reduce the prospective homeowner’s potential enjoyment of their investment.

ChancelCheck is an address point search which combines historical parish boundary information, modern mapping techniques and Inland Revenue data to determine if a building is within one of over 5,000 parishes that retain the right to charge for the cost of repairs to the church chancel.

ChancelCheck is also available with the option of a TitleChecker. TitleChecker is an automated title interrogation report that examines Land Registry records. It includes a copy of the Land Registry Official Copy of Register of Title (OC1), plus a discounted insurance quote (where TitleChecker identifies any risk).

ChancelCheck Premium is designed to analyse larger areas of land, or land/property falling within more than one parish.

Ground Stability and Mining

A ground stability and mining report is designed to highlight any potential mining and subsidence hazards at a property.

The presence of a hazard could mean that your property is at risk of structural damage such as subsidence.

Subsidence is a silent and often ignored risk when it comes to purchasing a property, but for those affected it can be costly. In addition to the physical risk, a property affected by subsidence after it has been purchased may subsequently be difficult to insure and / or secure a mortgage against.
