A misunderstood fact is that a Local Authority Search will only report on what is inside a properties boundary, yet it is often what is outside it that can impact it.

To research a location is time consuming and very specialist. That’s what DevAssist do, and in doing so have protected and prevented serious financial mistakes for many of our clients.

Buying any property has risks to buyers, lenders and solicitors, and all are closely connected. Exposing unknown risks is essential for all parties concerned.


Did you know that 95% of homebuyers are concerned about development risks. 10% will be affected by it.

With solicitors PI being one of the most common contributory factors to solicitors going out of business can you afford not to protect it? DevAssist have created the only reports of their type in the country. They investigate and audit a location so that buyers of property can purchase with peace of mind, or in the knowledge that change is coming. By understanding change it prevents any blame to the solicitor and increases service levels.

Leading planning barrister and commentator, Martin Edwards, observes: “Information is power. So why would any conveyancing solicitor not offer their client the opportunity to learn about what the future may hold in terms of any possible development threat or opportunity?”

DevCheck enables Wills and Probate Solicitors the security of knowing they are not underselling the property assets by establishing the hidden potential or alternative reuse that may increase the property’s monetary worth.
