OneSearch Direct, the largest independent local authority data search company in the UK, has today announced that it is to set up a department at its Glasgow headquarters dedicated to supplying data for the ‘SiteSolutions Highways’ report successfully launched at the end of last year by Landmark Information Group.

The ‘SiteSolutions Highways’ report, utilises data from OneSearch Direct and is available for commercial transactions. It provides the most comprehensive and definitive information into planned changes to roads and rights of way affecting commercial sites, including the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges. It also identifies any Public Rights of Way in addition to detailing any impending roadworks that may impact on a site.

“It is essential that conveyancers have access to accurate information throughout the sales process so their clients can be kept fully informed,” confirms Elizabeth Jarvis, managing director, OneSearch Direct. “At OneSearch Direct we are focused on supplying the highest quality and most detailed information available, all guaranteed and backed by professional indemnity insurance giving peace of mind to all involved in the property transaction. The ‘SiteSolutions Highways’ report, has seen a particularly successful uptake since launch and as a result, we are now setting up a dedicated department to manage and process enquiries.”

Caroline Robinson, Senior Account Manager at Landmark Information Group said: “The ‘SiteSolutions Highways report’ accesses OneSearch Direct’s dataset taken from the relevant Highway Authority at every County Council and Local Authority in the UK. It is digitised on Ordnance Survey mapping to generate a single easy-to-read, comprehensive document which dramatically cuts the time that professional conveyancers spend in researching and sourcing accurate data on highways from various dispersed sources. We are delighted with the response it has received to date.”
The ‘Site Solutions Highways’ report is available for commercial transactions and is available to all search companies. .

Jarvis concludes: “OneSearch Direct’s vast database of property information puts us in a unique position in the search industry. With 25 years’ experience and backed by Souter Investments, we are looking forward to capitalising and developing the information we can supply to both existing and new markets in the future.”
