Understand the planning landscape surrounding a property

When carrying out due diligence ahead of a property transaction, helping your client to understand the upcoming changes to the area surrounding their future home can be a shrewd consideration, helping to ensure that their investment delivers upon expectations.

At first glance, a prospective home can deliver everything your client is looking for. Be that scope for a home office, green space for walks and views, a garden in which to enjoy socialising with friends, or room to grow the family. However, it is important to understand what changes are planned for the local area and community in which they are planning to live, and how this may impact them and their expectations for their new home.

Planning Search Reports

Increasingly, conveyancers are seeking to educate their clients about the risks and impacts of proposed developments near to their prospective property, by including a planning search within the standard suite of searches which they provide to clients.

The latest Planning search reports from FCI, Premium Plus Planning and FCI Planning, can help conveyancers to deliver the best advice and a thorough due diligence service to clients, by providing all the relevant information required to enable an informed decision to be made.


Get the Full Picture on Planning

Complete with FCICapture and Dynamic Search Technology, our intuitive Planning range, incorporating FCI Planning and Premium Plus Planning enables conveyancers and homebuyers to gain a swift appreciation of the planning landscape in relation to a property and its location.

The reports present the planning and development activity which is proposed or currently taking place, and that which has occurred over the past 10 years, alongside any constraints or considerations for the homebuyer.
