Commercial Environmental Report for Small Business Retailers Launched

Future Climate Info, the Innovative environmental data provider, has today launched a new commercial environmental report dedicated to the specific needs of retailers and small businesses.

Until now, Commercial property lawyers have had to purchase large, frequently over complex data reports. They often covered an unnecessarily wide area, not relevant for the footprint and immediate area for most retail and small business locations.

Priced at just £75 plus VAT, the new FCI Retail Report is for smaller commercial property transactions with continued existing use (not redevelopment). It includes contaminated land, flooding and ground stability datasets, as well as FCI partner Earthsense’s unique national Air Quality dataset, MappAir.

It addresses retail and small business needs through:

  • A professional opinion on the contaminated land risk and a risk rating for potential subsidence
  • An assessment of flood risk, including likelihood of impact on obtaining insurance.
  • Air Quality ratings that could have affect shoppers and employees

It offers exceptional reliance and value including as standard:

  • A £5 million professional indemnity cover
  • A £100,000 6 year remediation warranty cover for passed reports
Not all Businesses are the Same

Small businesses need certainty and security to be able to thrive. There are enough economic headwinds in the market right now, whether from Brexit or online competition affecting the High Streetsaid Geoff Offen, Managing Director, Future Climate Info.

Business owners want to quickly and easily identify relevant environmental matters that could interrupt business continuity. This includes risks like subsidence and flooding that could have a direct impact on them and not just in the general area.

This new report shows FCI leading the way once again: delivering what this market segment wants. Better value in terms of data, opinion and reliance, but also very cost effective. This avoids the need to pay more when you don’t need to.

We want to end the “one size fits all” mentality when it comes to commercial environmental reports.”

Enhanced Commercial Environmental Report

In addition, FCI has enhanced the existing Commercial Environmental Report for larger property transactions with clearer mapping, aerial photography and symbols. It also includes a broader section on site setting, the ecology and any vulnerabilities.

The new and enhanced reports are available from today. Commercial conveyancers can also obtain them from any of the leading commercial property search resellers.
