TV's Phil Spencer partners with 192.com to launch a Property Report that empowers house hunters.

192.com research shows:

  • More than one-third of people (36%) wish they had more information about the property and local area before moving.
  • One in three (33%) have had a bad experience when buying or renting a new home.
  • 91% of people look at property online - in fact 69% of us admit to checking out property online even when not planning to move.

192.com has partnered with Location, Location, Location presenter Phil Spencer to produce a Property Report that helps empower property hunters, giving them all the information on a property and the local area to make an informed decision before making an offer.

The report gives house-hunters instant access to important information about any property in England and Wales. This includes the title register, valuations of the property and neighbouring homes, planning information including approved, pending and even rejected applications, and whether the property falls within the successful admissions areas of local primary and secondary schools. The report empowers buyers and renters by making all the facts available to them in one place, helping them to get the best deal possible and making them aware of any potential issues that may not be immediately obvious.

In a survey conducted by 192.com more than one-third of people said they had wished they had been better informed about the property and the local area before moving to their current address. In addition, the survey also revealed that one in three homeowners has had a bad experience when buying a property.

Phil Spencer said, launching the report: "I want to arm anyone moving with the tools, knowledge and confidence to secure the right property and get the best deal possible. Knowing vital property-specific and local area information about somewhere you're set to call 'home' is too often overlooked. Having all the facts to hand and knowing what to do with them is essential when buying or renting."

The property report costs just £17.99 and can be downloaded instantly from 192.com or via Phil Spencer's property advice portal moveIQ.co.uk
