tmgroup announces latest CPD webinar: Why a Utility search is essential in redevelopment projects

Conducting utilities’ due diligence is a mandatory health and safety requirement, before starting any site work that involves ground penetration for new or existing developments.

During the planning phase of a new build development, it’s often assumed that utilities, such as gas, electricity, telecommunications, water, sewerage and drainage, will be readily accessible for connection, removal, or diversion. Getting it wrong can lead to potential costly mistakes.

Utility reports can feel complex and overwhelming. Property search specialists, tmgroup, and Groundsure are teaming up to present a free training webinar for law firms who work on commercial development projects and property lawyers who work with developers looking to build new build homes.
