Future Climate Info and Terrafirma Raise the Bar for Environmental Reports

Two innovative environmental data experts join forces to create unique offering

Future Climate Info (FCI) has teamed up with Terrafirma to deliver the most comprehensive package yet of environmental risk data, protection and support for homebuyers.

Available now, the all-new Premium Plus CON29M combines Future Climate Info’s Premium residential environmental search, with Terrafirma’s new official CON29M coal mining search, which has been approved by The Law Society.

The Premium Environmental Search already includes comprehensive data and risk assessment for contaminated land, flood and subsidence, while highlighting energy and infrastructure projects that could impact the transaction.

Unlike other providers, the FCI Premium already had a unique combination of extra datasets such as neighbourhood air quality, high resolution insurability in relation to flooding and postcode specific subsidence risk rating.

Now, with the launch of the new partnership with Terrafirma, the bar has been raised further, with the addition of their new official CON29M Coal Mining Search.

Built using official Coal Authority data, Terrafirma’s search is backed by their expert panel of geology specialists, who are on hand to answer any concerns for homebuyers.

The report also includes nearby coal mining subsidence claims data, which would normally cost extra with other CON29M providers, ensuring that a fuller risk assessment can be provided quicker.

“The Premium Plus CON29M is the latest chapter in our innovation in the market” said Geoff Offen, Managing Director of Future Climate Info “Our aim is to always offer better value, clearer, more concise reports with data and support that homebuyers and conveyancers alike can trust. Working with equally innovative partners like Terrafirma who share this goal, means we can provide ever more clarity and guidance to keep transactions moving.”

Said Tom Backhouse, CEO of Terrafirma: “We are excited to be working with Future Climate Info to create the new standard for the combined environmental and coal mining risk assessment. Our combined expertise, access to support and inclusive data means that homebuyers get the insight they need in a comprehensive, yet easy to read report that meets Law Society and Lender compliance.“
