Providing Actionable Guidance for your Client
In order to fulfil your duty of care to guide clients, it is important to translate the findings from climate analysis in our environmental searches to actionable advice. We recognise that you cannot predict or explain in detail how the climate could impact your client’s investment in the future, but you need consistent and robust language that enables you to signpost next actions if a potential issue is highlighted.
We have created these climate clauses for property transactions below for you to copy and paste into your documents, for example the client advisory or the report on title to the lender. Simply download the clauses and copy and paste into your own documents.
