FCI have created a quick, cost effective and robust route to investigate and solve potential environmental liabilities flagged in reports.
A commercial environmental search may have highlighted possible liabilities associated with the ‘Contaminated Land’ regime. By quantifying the likely magnitude of the risks identified in the original search, in the majority of cases, a “pass” risk assessment can then be given.
Access in-house environmental consultancy expertise, which approaches regulators to gather and review additional property-specific information.
It also delivers separate valuable guidance which may be relevant to the transaction. Based on a review of the known historical risks, possible redevelopment constraints are highlighted as well as any potential regulatory action or litigation based on the existing use of the property.
Our pricing structure is designed to offer simplicity. We work on a fixed fee basis (within standard size bands). This includes all the costs charged to us by the regulators which means you can confidently report the final cost to your client, without worrying about variable fees.
Single Residential Properties (0 – 0.25 Ha): £245 + VAT*
Commercial Properties (0 – 2 Ha): £450 + VAT*
Offers a more forensic site analysis to seek evidence of historical contamination issues which could lead to regulatory action, or features which could cause future environmental harm to soils or controlled waters.
We can offer you a quote to conduct the work for a fixed fee. This fee will include all regulatory charges, as well as expenses associated with attending the property, meaning you can confidently report the full cost upfront to your client.
From £995 + VAT(1)
All costs charged by regulators are included so that conveyancers can be confident of the final cost to the client, without hidden or variable fees – with no limit to the amount of separate enquiries that may need to be made.
