tmconvey : property searches residential

The combined tm experience across our helpdesk team means you have all the support you need whenever you need it


A residential conveyancing transaction is often referred to as a process, but we know that it's the cases that fall outside of the norm that need specialist support and attention. That's why we provide a system with built-in tools to streamline your day-to-day transactions, backed by support to alert you to potential issues and help you resolve them.

Our platform has the simplicity to streamline the way you work, whatever the size of your conveyancing team. It responds to your needs – from search bundle templates to our sophisticated risk alerts, our efficient systems create more time for you to be proactive for your client.

And when it comes to making the right decision, you will have access to the data you need. We take the time to integrate the very latest reports and searches into our system to make sure the information you receive is up-to-date.

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.

These risk alerts are designed to help you comply with the CML Handbook.

"You must make a mining search (such as coal, tin, china clay, or brine search) where it is reasonable to believe that the property could be affected by underground workings..."
— Paragraph 5.2.4:

We also provide you with risk alerts in the form of expiry warnings on Land Registry searches due to expire in the next 7 days for OS1, OS2, K15 and K16.
