Utilities


We can provide searches from any of the major utilities suppliers in England and Wales. 

From gas pipelines, to electricity supplies and wayleave enquiries to telecommunications, we can ensure that you have access to the information you require.

With a range of reports available for residential or commercial transactions and with a differing level of detail to suit your requirements, utilities data not only helps in your due diligence but can also minimize delay, cost and possible litigation.

Our full utilities reports go one step further and collate all utility information into a single source, providing an outline of features below the surface. The reports provide valuable information required before any excavations, designs or developments commence and will help reduce the risks of: expensive litigation if damage is caused, delayed project design, increased foundation costs and added danger for the workforce involved.
