Coronavirus – an update from Severn Trent Searches

We hope you’re all well in these challenging times.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, Severn Trent Searches have made some changes to the way we work.

Our staff are still working to provide as normal a service as possible. We have had to temporarily close our Nottingham office, but are all working remotely, and able to offer the majority of our services.

We are able to complete CON29DW searches as normal, and the majority of our suppliers are also offering a complete service. Some local authorities however have understandably had to reduce or halt production of CON29 and LLC1 searches as they prioritise their resources. Any updates we receive regarding affected services are posted in the news section of our website.

During this period, our usual phone numbers, email and postal addresses will continue to function as normal. Full details can be found on our contact page.

Most importantly, stay safe and we look forward to hearing from you as normal.

Thames Water Property Searches

Updated 21/05/20

Thames are now operating again remotely without issue. Orders should continue to be sent to them as normal.


Thames Water have closed their property searches department during the current crisis. During this period we will not be able to obtain searches for properties within the Thames region, or complete searches in cross-border areas.

Their statement reads as follows:

“During these challenging times, we’ve made the decision to focus our resources on our first business priority – continuing to supply water and wastewater services , while keeping our customers and staff safe. This means that our property searches will be impacted. We’ve closed for now and will be pausing all current services.

“We’re sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience during this time.”
