The top 3 ways to mitigate risk before purchasing land

Mitigate risk before purchasing land

Undertaking due diligence appraisals of new land opportunities as part of the technical team requires an eye for detail, the ability to take in and assess vast amounts of data and the patience to undertake in-depth site investigations.

Before making recommendations and pulling together reports regarding the purchase of land, lots of information has to be considered by an expert eye, because mitigating risk before that project goes any further is key.


100% trust in the data

In order to allow the technical team to work efficiently, this data has to be clear, easy to interpret, and above all, accurate.

Promap only uses the most reliable and thoroughly checked datasets. We source data directly from agencies like Ordnance Survey, The Environment Agency and the Land Registry.

In addition, sitting behind every data instance, we have a dedicated Data Team of 20 who source, process and validate data regularly. They use specific tools such as Oracle, FME and QGIS which enable them to complete a number of tests and checks, ensuring that our data is truly best in class.


Clear, accessible data at your fingertips

Searching for the required data and waiting for the reports to be returned is one of the most frustrating parts of the process, as is converting the data into a useful format for your review and final recommendations.

One of the best ways to save time is by having all your data in one place, easily accessible and easy to interpret.
