Onesearch Prime – Regulated Local Search

This month’s highlighted product of the month is OneSearch Prime, a regulated local search report from OneSearch Direct.

An alternative to official local authority searches, the regulated search has a standardised format with a single fixed price nationally.

Available for both residential and commercial properties, the regulated local search report includes a search of the Local Land Charges Register and responses to Local Search Enquiries.

Local Land Charges data will reveal information such as to whether a tree preservations order is registered against a property. In addition, it will include information on enforcement notices, planning obligations and designations as a conservation area.

The Local Search Enquiries part of the search includes planning applications data, adoption status of roads, contaminated land, radon gas, listed building repairs and outstanding notices relating to a number of items.
