SearchFlow the UK’s leading provider of conveyancing search solutions – is today announcing the introduction of a unique data-backed Continuity Property Solution, which is designed to help keep the residential property industry moving in these unprecedented times.  


Following a significant investment, the new continuity solution provides lawyers and conveyancers with access to a data-driven bundled solution that incorporates property search data from the UK’s single largest search database, which has been invested in over the last two decades. It also includes an Environmental report, Mining search and Chancel Repair policy, making it a workable alternative to a traditional search pack.  The offering is backed by a £1m insurance indemnity policy that offers assurances to the conveyancing community.


Conducting physical property searches with Local Authorities and key data providers is now a significant concern as Government contingency measures increasingly affect access to these essential data sources.  In response to this SearchFlow has created the Continuity Property Solution to offer a helping hand to the industry.


Dr Thomas Quirke, Managing Director, SearchFlow, said “To create and launch this solution, we have invested significantly in resources and training so we can help the industry in its hour of need; we have the resources, scale and capability to rapidly bring this to market, even in this challenging climate.  Our team is fully trained and mobilised ready to fully support all customers.”


“We are all confronted with facing the most extraordinary times and so, our aim is to support the UK’s residential conveyancing industry through this. We recognise the challenges presented to the conveyancers and believe that our continuity solution is the best available in the current climate.


“Providing a new class of property search, the solution combines our extensive local authority data, core ancillary reports and relevant insurances to cover any residual risks, while we all work through these uncertain times.”


The significant database of national Local Authority sources enables conveyancers to access a record of the relevant property search, combined with the latest environmental report data.  Where residual risk may be present, due to the most recent changes in the specific property’s area, insurance cover is provided to provide class-leading protection.
