We've been speaking with clients to see how best we can accommodate you during these challenging times, and have found a common solution which we think could be of real benefit during lockdown and beyond.
A lot of transactions put "on hold" during lockdown has resulted in an upturn in volume now restrictions are lifted. This is putting further strain on many firms and local authorities who already have impacted turnaround times due to furlough or closure.
A productive alternative to a delayed search, or no-search insurance, is OneSearch Duo: a Regulated Local Authority search which is split into two parts, returning the majority of CON29 enquiries within 24 hours.
This allows you to investigate potential red flags from the outset, not after an already potentially long wait.
OneSearch Duo is made up of the following two reports:
- Part A: Alert contains most CON29 data (over 70% of a Local Authority search), already captured in-house and typically returned within 24 hours.
- Part B: Prime contains the full Regulated Local Authority search including the remainder of outstanding data, which is the Local Land Charges, Building Regulations and Highways. This report is refreshed at point of delivery, so will always contain the most up to date information.
