Real Estate Due Diligence

The firm also advises overseas law firms and other businesses establishing a presence in the UK.
The team is dedicated to providing a practical and commercial approach to a wide range of property matters.
One aspect of the team’s transactional work is conducting due diligence, which includes review and assessment of property search results. We spoke with Rebecca Evans, Legal Director within Fox Williams’ real estate team, to discuss the importance of providing clients with accurate information as part of each transaction, and how they have transitioned to SearchFlow as their chosen search provider:
“We are always looking for ways to enhance the client experience and efficiency. The team at SearchFlow provided us with a demonstration of the search ordering system and additional Data Layers platforms and we liked that we could check for risks with a property or portfolio of properties through an online mapping tool, before any searches are ordered.
“We decided to sign up with SearchFlow and the client on-boarding process was smooth. The SearchFlow team is there to answer any questions – they are very open and honest – and the functionality of the platform suits our needs. With SearchFlow, the dashboard provides the latest status, or we can call or email the team if we have any questions.
“Our Customer Success Manager organised some great training sessions for us and has been available for follow-ups; the team are all very easy to deal with.
“All of our commercial searches are now managed via SearchFlow, and it has been a positive experience for us.”
