If you use the Geodesys website to order your searches, you will be familiar with the Search Alert tool that appears when ordering your searches. On our new website it appears in the top right-hand corner to identify potential risks and highlight the conveyancing searches that you should be considering based on these potential risks.
New alert now available
A new alert incorporating four levels of risk has been developed to help you understand the presence of any nearby planning applications. It provides insight into the presence of small residential planning applications very close to the property, right through to large non-residential applications that might impact the wider area.
We understand that a single alert for the presence of nearby planning applications would apply to most properties, so this alert has been developed to provide four different alerts based on the size and type of planning application. This means that the information can be used in a way that is of real use to you.
The four different alerts explain in a clear way what types of planning application have been found in the nearby area:
|Small Residential Planning Applications||Areas with nearby smaller Residential Planning Applications, generally less than 10 dwellings.|
|Large Residential Planning Applications||Areas with nearby larger Residential Planning Applications, generally more than 10 dwellings or that are unclassified.|
|Small non-Residential Planning Applications||Areas with nearby smaller non-Residential Planning Applications, generally less than 250m².|
|Large non-Residential Planning Applications||Areas with nearby larger non-Residential Planning Applications, generally over 250m².|
This alert will highlight two recommended conveyancing reports - the Plansearch Plus Report from our partners at Landmark and also the DevAssess from DevAssist, which contains the Plansearch Plus report, and delivers it together with a deeper analysis of the data it contains.
