We are making some minor adjustments to our pricing.
Unfortunately, like all businesses, we have seen a considerable increase in costs from our supply chains.
Moreover, we have made substantial pay increases to all staff due to the recent and ongoing rises in the cost of living. As our staff are by far our most important resource, this was a priority decision and we are proud to say that even our lowest paid staff earn more than the National Living Wage (see here for more details on the recent increase in National Living Wage).
Unfortunately, as we’re sure you’ll understand, we’re no longer able to absorb these increased costs without making some minor adjustments to our pricing.
The good news is that we have been able to keep our fee for a standard sized basic utility search at £58.00 – a price that been unchanged for over 10 years!
We are, however, making the following changes:
- To add a cable search (to a basic search) our fee will rise from £23.50 to £27.00
- To add an independent utility search (to a basic search) our fee will rise from £10.00 to £12.00
- Our standard fee for drawing CAD (100m by 100m outside of London) will rise from £60.00 to £66.00
- The cost to provide OS background mapping will now start from £27.00 (up from £26.00)
Note that on top of our fees, there is VAT and also disbursements/cost of plans to add – we have always passed these on at cost.
Prices will come in effect from 1st June 2022.
