We are delighted to announce that we have launched a range of planning search data products for residential conveyancing professionals and search resellers.
Planning reports have been a feature of conveyancing searches for several years but have often been viewed with some skepticism by property lawyers.
Many view them as too long, with too much unnecessary extra local amenity information and crucially, not accurate and often missing the latest available applications or developments that could impact a client after completion.
FCI has addressed this through the release of its new suite of Planning reports. Planning application data is pulled “live” from the data supplier at the request of each report, ensuring that the very latest available information is used to compile the product.
The reports also see the first outing for FCI’s unique intelligent FCICapture technology. Planning application records are usually recorded as a single point and typically identified only when they fall within a search radius around the subject property.
While FCI follows this convention, it goes one step further by identifying application points relating to ‘Developments’ which, although lying outside of the search boundary, if completed may, in reality, extend within the area of interest around the subject property.
Additionally, dynamic buffering ensures that the search radius used to identify larger applications is suitable for the area in which the property is located, whether this be a rural or a city landscape.
“We are proud to announce the first delivery of our exciting FCICapture technology, a market leading innovation. This allows us to push the boundaries of the existing market offering and reveal those key developments which might appear some distance from the property, but in reality, could heavily influence a client’s quiet enjoyment of their future home “said Tim Champney, Managing Director.
