New Highways report provides the green light for Commercial Conveyancers

Landmark Information Group is launching a new report that will provide the most comprehensive and accurate information into planned changes to roads and rights of way affecting commercial sites. The SiteSolutions Highways report looks to dramatically cut the time that professional conveyancers spend in researching and sourcing accurate data on highways that impact on their clients’ building and development assets.

The SiteSolutions Highways report provides the most definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development site. The report is powered by OneSearch Data, who database information from the relevant Highway Authority at every County Council and Local Authority in the UK, then digitise this information on Ordnance Survey mapping. This is then generated into a single easy-to-read, comprehensive report. Conveyancers will be able to receive the reports much more quickly than is currently possible (between 2 and 8 working days – the exact time varies by region) which will provide their clients with the information they need to make decisions about purchase and/or development opportunities. The report is backed by £10 million professional indemnity insurance.

Greg Bryce, Commercial Director of Landmark Information Group, said: “Professional conveyancers are under constant pressure to provide their clients with accurate information regarding highways maintenance liability. However, to date a number of barriers have been in place – the reliance on disparate data sources, variable costs of sourcing this information and the speed at which local authorities can provide a validation letter relating to highways in the vicinity of their clients’ assets.

“Landmark’s SiteSolutions Highways solves all of these problems by providing fast and accurate data at a fixed price, all backed by professional indemnity insurance to provide peace of mind to those involved in a property transaction. We’ve worked very closely with a number of conveyancers to understand the requirements and now we believe it is the solution that the legal and property industries have long been waiting for.”

Landmark Site Solutions Highways is available for £120 + VAT via all property search companies.
