What people say

  • For many years we have used the Title Overlay Plan service (TOP) provided by Ward Hadaway’s Plan Technicians and it has proved extremely useful in providing and bringing forward vital information at an early stage in the site/project appraisal process. The TOP service is invaluable to us and our professional teams including architects and engineers and has helped us save money and manage risk.
