OneSearch Direct, the largest independent local authority data search company in the UK, has today announced that it is to set up a department at its Glasgow headquarters dedicated to supplying data for the 'SiteSolutions" Highways reports successfully launched at the end of last year by Landmark Information Group.
The 'SiteSolutions Highways' report, utilises data from OneSearch Direct and is available for commercial transactions. It provides the most comprehensive and definitive information into planned changes to roads and rights of way affecting commercial sites, including the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges. With interest rates steadfastly refusing to rise, investors are looking elsewhere for opportunities to invest their savings. One particular opportunity is the rental property market, you or if you have the funds available you buy a property and then get an income from the rent.
