Why OneSearch Prime?
- Quality – Our database methodology, stringent quality control checks and experienced staff ensures the quality of our reports.
- Standard Format – Our Regulated Local Authority Search is presented in a clear and uniform format, regardless of Local Authority.
- Summary Page – The first page of the report has a well-defined summary page, detailing the most essential matters of the report upfront. It also has colour coding for ease of reference.
- Fixed Price – The price of our Regulated Local Authority Searches (OneSearch Prime) is the same fixed price nationwide, meaning that you can quote without having to refer to Local Authorities for individual prices.
- Cost Effective – Regulated Searches are more cost effective than Official Local Authority Searches in the majority of cases.
- Protection – Our Regulated Searches are backed by £10 Million PI cover for errors and omissions in the Local Authorities records.
- Lenders – Our Regulated Searches are accepted by the majority of mortgage lenders in the UK. Less than 1% of smaller lenders do not accept Regulated Searches. In the unlikely event that this occurred, OneSearch Direct would swap your Regulated Search for a Local Authority Search. Please click here to find out which lenders accept personal searches.
