This month’s highlighted product is the CON29DW Flood+ Report produced by ourselves in cooperation with Severn Trent Water. Flood information is provided by Landmark Information Group Ltd.
A drainage and water search that provides data on maps, billing and connections, along with flood risk information.
Available for residential properties in the Severn Trent region, this unique report combines two different data sets from both the Law Society approved CON29DW search alongside Landmark flood data. The CON29DW part of the report includes details of sewer and water assets, connections to water and sewer pipes, water pressure, hardness and billing information. The most common types of flooding data is also included; flooding from rivers and seas, surface water, ground water, insurance rating and flood defense information.
The Flood+ has a few additional features which are not in the standard CON29DW report. Firstly, the report has a more modern feel with an improvised, clear layout. Secondly, the front page summary with colour coded status icons any potential issues with either parts of the search. Finally, client care letters provide extra information on sewer adoptions, public assets within property boundaries and unconnected properties.
