Groundsure’s Homebuyers Plus report is a new residential environmental risk report, an enhanced version of the existing Homebuyers report which will keep your transaction moving faster. This report is based on Land Registry polygons (the original Homebuyers is point based), and has several new features, vastly improved layout, design and clearer navigation - all improving conveyancer workflow.

Homebuyers Plus reviews flood, contaminated land, ground stability and screens other environmental risks such as energy, transportation and planning to provide comprehensive environmental checks for a residential property.

The Homebuyers Plus report is the equivalent of the existing Homebuyers report but with additional data and layout enhancements:

Flood risk assessment now includes new JBA 5m groundwater data – detailing all sources of flood including groundwater and surface water risk. Also reviews historical flood events & proposed flood defence schemes

Enhanced view on potential and planned energy installations - the energy alert details specific energy infrastructure categories within 5km of the property. This alert includes existing and proposed: oil and gas sites including fracking; power stations including nuclear; wind power projects; solar farms and major energy infrastructure projects

Enhanced transportation summary – provides detail on HS2 (route, safeguarding, stations & depots); Crossrail 1 (route, stations, worksites); Railways (active railways, stations), Docklands Light Railway, active railways, HS2 and the Crossrail 1 project

Enhanced screening on planning applications

Enhanced visual and cultural designations – e.g. building conservation areas, listed buildings.
