[Our reports]

Do I need to order a report through my solicitor?2024-01-12T11:36:00+00:00

The most thorough and risk-averse solicitors will ensure we’re included in their conveyancing services to you, but if our report is not included in your package, you can buy from us directly.

Doesn’t this information get revealed in the local authority searches?2024-01-12T11:36:18+00:00

No, the local authority searches are only required to look inside the boundary of your intended purchase.

What report do I need?2024-01-12T11:36:36+00:00

For any risk-averse buyer, we always recommend [DevAssess Premium]. For high-value properties in city centres, we strongly recommend [DevCity].
