About HW Conveyancing Searches

Whatever your conveyancing information needs are, we pride ourselves on providing you with a comprehensive selection of  reports for  any property no matter how big, small, new or old!

Our dedicated team is made up of fully trained and experienced staff (see our ‘Meet the Team’ page) who do not rely on technology alone to conduct their work; they also draw on personal experience dating back to 1987. Our thorough approach has ensured that we have not received a single complaint in over 10 years of service, but nonetheless we hold a £5 million indemnity insurance for our client’s peace of mind; many other agents only offer £2 million, while the Local Authorities offer none at all. This is indicative of the extra mile we are always willing to go to make our clients day run smoothly.

Using our online ordering service is simple and customised to every client. You just select the searches and reports you require, upload a plan if you have one (if you don’t have one, we will get it for you free of charge!) and let us do the rest. You will receive an acknowledgement promptly on completion of ordering, and all your search results will be returned to you by email as soon as they become available. Payments can be made in whichever fashion suits your company best.

Our expertise goes beyond paperwork too. Andrew, the Managing Director of HW, ensures that he keeps our clients up to date with regular client care meetings to deliver the most recent industry news and changes, as well as introducing new products. Andrew is also the Chairman of the search agent trade body IPSA, and has been appointed as a Director/Board Member of PCCB, the keepers of the Search Code, which all Regulated Local Searches must adhere to. No one else can bring this level of knowledge, connections and foresight right to your team. We strive to continuously adapt and improve the service and products that we provide.

We are the only search company accredited to deliver CPD Training in Local Searches by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and since 2008 have successfully been running free seminars or stand-alone speaker events for solicitors and conveyancers. This service is provided free of charge to our clients at a time and venue that suits you. Recent venues include Marwell Zoo, The Ageas Bowl, Royal Marines Museum, Quay Arts Centre – Newport, etc.

All reports available from a choice of vendors, including Groundsure, Landmark, DevAssist and Terrafirma.
