We are the largest local search data company in the UK.

We have been collecting and storing data since 1992. We provide property information and conveyancing products to solicitors and data organisations throughout England & Wales. So far, we have carried out over 1.5 million local searches, and we are still growing.

The accuracy of our data, and quality check methodology, means our claims history is impeccable. Our searches are covered by Professional Indemnity Cover up to £10m.


To further support due diligence, OneSearch Direct subscribe to the Search Code, which is regulated and monitored by the Property Code Compliance Board (PCCB).


Lender requirements are satisfied through rigorously tested compliance measures, including a remote office with fully operational capabilities, effective within 24 hours.

Empowering You and Your Clients


Our toolkit enables conveyancing professionals to increase conversions, deliver exceptional service and stand out from the rest.

Conveyancer’s Toolkit allows you to:

1. Order appropriate searches specific to your property.

2. Quote for work, including your own fees.

3. Place an order, through our integrated platform.

We have invested over £10 million in our datasets and technology.

We meticulously search through every local newspaper, public notice register and committee meeting document for all council areas in England & Wales to garner relevant data.

We capture data at every stage, from initial proposals, public consultations, and committee hearings, to advertisement. By the time any action is authorised, we have a comprehensive backstory in our unrivalled database.

We update this information daily, in order to maintain full accuracy. This also allows us to generate national geographical data faster than any individual local authority.

We operate a highly effective Triple Quality Check method for our data capture.

All data is verified and put through stringent quality assurance checks to guarantee the highest quality of information.

Our expansion into new industries means we now also provide traffic, mapping and environmental data.

We can provide real-time data in a variety of formats including ESRI, Mapfile and CSV. Organisations can use our data for:

  • Local Authority Unification
  • Data Replenishment
  • Traffic Analysis
  • CPZ Insight
  • Region/Country Wide Analysis
  • Change Intelligence
