FCI and Terrafirma Raise the Bar for Environmental Reports

We are delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Terrafirma to deliver the most comprehensive package yet of environmental risk data, protection and support for homebuyers.

Now available is our all-new Premium Plus CON29M, combining the FCI Premium residential environmental search with Terrafirma’s new official CON29M coal mining search, approved by The Law Society.

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

Now, in partnership with Terrafirma, we have added their exciting new official CON29M Coal Mining Risk Assessment, as they are the first private company to be licensed by the Law Society to produce CON29M Reports.

Built using official Coal Authority data, Terrafirma’s risk assessment 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.”
