Serving the Legal Profession

Established in 2004 but with roots going back the early 90’s, NSS is one of the longest established and most respected Property Search companies in England & Wales.
We provide property searches to the legal profession both directly and via a franchising model that is unique in the market place.
Many of the largest conveyancing firms, now operate their own NSS Search franchise as a separate business and we are one of the key partners for many serious conveyancing firms and regional estate agents.

Recent years have seen huge changes in the search market with first the introduction of Home Information Packs and then their subsequent abolition. This has meant that personal searches have become widely accepted by conveyancers everywhere.

Perhaps more significantly in July 2010, after a long running battle between local authorities and the information commissioner, the government instructed all local authorities that information contained within a local search was in fact environmental information and should be provided to personal search companies free of charge. This position has completely changed the landscape for personal search companies and we now have the best access and charging regime that we have known since personal searches were first carried out some twenty or thirty years ago.
