Our key objective is to provide our customers with practical solutions that enhance their business.

Our investment in technology, coupled with skilled staff and a creative development team, allows us to future-proof our operation by spotting market trends and staying ahead of them.

The OneSearch Methodology proves our data far exceeds the scope of traditional Local Authority or Personal Searches. You can have complete confidence when using our products and services, safe in the knowledge that our practices are rigorously tested and meet SRA guidelines.

With up to £10 million Professional Indemnity Insurance, you can depend on us to provide full and complete data that goes above and beyond a standard Local Authority search.

Data Quality is our key strength and distinguishes us from councils and other personal search suppliers. It is crucial in supporting your own risk management practices.

In a noisy, fluctuating industry, it makes sense to rely on a company who are long-established market leaders. We break away from our smaller, inexperienced competitors, with our team of over 100 people.
