tmconvey : property searches

93 years

Experience that you can trust. The combined tm experience across our helpdesk team giving you the support you need when things don't go according to plan.

We have the people, experience and award-winning systems to bring you an efficient property search service you can trust.

We've been developing the way we offer property searches since we gained the first NLIS licence in 2000. One of our early achievements was streamlining the time taken to order a search from 30 minutes down to five.

Property searches are an integral part of tmconvey; along with our insurance and risk management tools they make up the ultimate platform to help you successfully manage your property transactions.

As a responsive service provider, we've introduced many innovations over the years, including our best-in-class mapping and award-winning, time-saving technology. We know you also need experts on hand, so we invest heavily in our staff. When you contact our specialist helpdesk team, we'll do the leg work so it's the only call you'll need to make.

But we know that residential and commercial property transactions are very different and have unique requirements. That's why we have developed versatile services designed to assist you with any property. Learn more below:

: risk alerts

If your client uncovers a problem with their property after they've moved in, this can lead to litigation. To protect you and your clients we've developed a sophisticated risk alerts system.

Search Alerts are designed to help you comply with the terms of the CML Handbook. tmgroup will alert you if our data indicates that you should consider ordering searches from any of the following categories:

  • Coal mining
  • Mining and Ground stability
  • Energy and Infrastructure

In addition the tmgroup platform will also alert you if a potential hazard is identified by any of the integrated third party suppliers below;

  • Groundsure
    Search categories that are alerted: Flood, Energy and Infrastructure, mining and ground stability
  • Landmark
    Search categories that are alerted: Flood, Energy and Infrastructure, mining and ground stability
  • Planval (Searches Online)
    Search category that is alerted: Coal mining, Mining and Ground stability
  • Terrafirma
    Search category that is alerted: Coal mining, Mining and Ground stability
  • The Coal Authority
    Search categories that are alerted: Past, present and future coal mining activity and other coal mining related risks

Search alerts are also provided in the form of expiry warnings on Land Registry searches due to expire in the next 7 days for OS1, OS2, K15 and K16.

: dedicated helpdesk

More than 9 out of every 10 search orders are fulfilled hassle-free. If you do need to call us you can rely on our dedicated property helpdesk team.

With over 93 years' collective experience in supporting our customers, the helpdesk team resolves queries swiftly. For every three calls our helpdesk receives, two are resolved there and then. The rest often just require a simple query with one of our partners to resolve.

"It is reassuring to know that the tm helpdesk are a phone call/e-mail away if we should need any assistance or further information. I would thoroughly recommend tm's services." Claire Humphreys, Charles Coleman LLP

: intuitive mapping

Large scale land and unaddressed properties need intuitive mapping. Plot them quickly and efficiently using our commercial property mapping tool, which includes these helpful features:

  • Full screen mapping
    easy access to a larger area of the map.
  • Quick locate
    intelligent search functionality means fewer clicks to locate your land-property.
  • Lookup functionality overlaid on the map
    the address will be automatically populated by the case address you've provided.

: searches managed

Our in-house search hub links to all 348 land charges departments at Local Authorities. Each land charges department works differently which makes independent research time consuming. Using our expert Local Authority team is the efficient choice.

"We're frequently approached by other search companies, but we always tell them that we are happy with tmgroup and don't want to move." Claire Hogarth, R.T. Law Solicitors
