SearchLand - innovation in land sourcing for the property sector

SearchLand is a London-based startup aiming to make property companies data-driven and enabling better informed property and land decisions.

searchlandWe are currently in the middle of a housing crisis. Whether that’s house prices skyrocketing, building standards slipping, or simply availability of housing. It goes without saying that as the population grows, so must the amount of available housing; however, the land on which to develop is limited by a number of factors contributing to its potential, from its ownership, to its physical suitability and stability, to regulation.

Sources for determining these factors in order to make informed decisions are varied and aren’t centralised, leading to a lengthy assessment process that might only end up revealing that the site you’re looking at isn’t even viable.

5fb7bf4ee3311316e8e1d263_price-analysis-p-800.London-based proptech startup SearchLand wants to change this with their land-sourcing platform. They say that they “make property companies data driven and enable better informed property and land decisions, based upon relevant information”. The platform is designed to give industry professionals access to all of the information that they need in one place, quickly identifying the owner of any piece of publicly registered land in the UK, commercial or residential, and taking it from there.

From researching the ownership, to viewing the current and historical market values of any property type (powered by Land Registry), to analysing planning applications on that or neighbouring areas and the resulting decisions, SearchLand will make the process far quicker and easier. The platform also allows you to easily cut through all of the many planning constraints to easily see, in visual map layers, things like conservation areas, flood risk zones, Article 4 zones, and much more.

In November, SearchLand announced that they had raised £2.1 million in funding in a seed round led by Fuel Ventures. This funding comes after the startup’s participation in Spring 2021’s Geovation Accelerator Programme, and will be used to integrate additional datasets into the platform and further improve the automation of the land-sourcing processes, to make it easier and quicker for developers.
