Envirosearch Residential – Environmental risk report

This month’s highlighted product of the month is the Envirosearch Residential search, an environmental risk report from Landmark.

The report assesses a multitude of environmental risks to a property along with a consultant’s professional opinion.

Suitable for residential properties, the report identifies if a property is at risk of the following:-

  • Contaminated land – landfill, waste plus other contaminative activities and incidents
  • Flooding – river, coastal, surface, historic flood events and groundwater flooding
  • Energy & infrastructure – HS2, oil and gas exploration, wind farms/turbines and solar farms
  • Ground stability – man-made or natural factors
  • Radon
  • Overhead power lines

Each report includes a front page risk summary with clear next steps should ‘further action’ be required.
