Who is it for?

Our range of consultancy services has been designed for surveyors, developers and solicitors and provides guidance for over 100,000 property transactions each year, adding value and clarity to service providers and their clients.

GeoSmart are tech partners of the Royal Chartered Institution of Surveyors (RICS) who provide guidance on environmental risks to surveyors. When owning, occupying, purchasing, selling, letting, or carrying out works on a property, it is increasingly important to consider environmental risks.

Global market participants and their lending partners now demand to know more about the factors that could affect value, particularly environmental considerations, such as:

  • Contaminated Land
  • Flood Risk
  • Drainage
  • Groundwater

As defined by RICS, GeoSmart are an Environmental Specialist and can advise on environmental risks that could affect your Site.

What is involved?

Our consultants assess the actual or potential presence of environmental risks and liabilities including:

  • Identifying the risk of flooding with future climate change allowances and recognising the benefits of flood defences.
  • Reviewing the drainage provision and SuDS requirements for future development.
  • Establishing whether the site has a legacy of contaminated land and highlighting the options for mitigating potential risks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our dedicated team of experts will undertake an initial review of your Site to confirm environmental constraints, including contaminated land, flood risk and drainage, using geological mapping and other environmental datasets.

Our findings will be presented in a brief report, and you will also have the option to discuss the results and any further recommendations with a consultant.

GeoSmart can provide more detailed reports on several environmental risk factors through our Environmental Reports.

We can also recommend suppliers and associate organisations for further work that we cannot undertake such as on-site Investigation.

You can give us a call, send us an email or fill in your details on our Contact Us page.

This does not commit you to making any payment at this stage. Once we have received your enquiry, we will get back to you by phone to check your details, discuss your Site, respond to any queries you may have, confirm the price of the service(s) you are interested in, and to confirm whether you wish to proceed.

If you wish to proceed, we can then send you a formal confirmation document and take payment. Once your payment is processed and required information received, we can start work straight away.

As much information as possible on your Site! As a minimum though we require:

  • Site address.
  • Site location plan with a red line boundary.
  • Which (if any) environmental factor you are most concerned about e.g. flood risk.
  • Why you need our services e.g. purchasing a Site.
  • Your details (name, email address, phone number).

“During the conveyancing process for my current house purchase, I was extremely concerned to find the general search results revealed the house was at ‘moderate risk of groundwater flooding’. I was unable to get any further information from anyone until I contacted GeoSmart. The staff I spoke to were friendly, helpful, efficient and extremely knowledgeable. The information provided was very site specific and focused. The staff member who talked me through the information and…
