Chimnie is a data-powered property platform, built to help make homebuying easy. By providing free research reports for 29 million properties, we enable homebuyers to instantly check details for any property and its surroundings.

Chimnie provides public, licenced and user-submitted data about properties that used to be restricted to professional property investors through expensive tools.

Chimnie does not presently list properties for sale or rent - we only provide data about properties.

Estate agents help to provide our users with free valuations requested through our platform.

Chimnie builds on the work of HM Government and Ordnance Survey to create and update reports for every single property in Britain - over 29 million of them. This architectural and geographic data is not classified as personal data, and is published in the public interest.

Chimnie's property reports are accessed daily by homebuyers, insurers, underwriters, banks, lenders & credit agencies to understand a property or location better. Whilst a Chimnie profile can be hidden by an owner, this is usually perceived negatively by those making financial decisions.

Chimnie is Britain's most powerful property research tool, using open, licenced, and user-submitted data to compile reports. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of any report, and strongly encourage you to verify details with owners, hire a conveyancer, and conduct a survey before ever purchasing a property you found on Chimnie.

Chimnie produces property reports for every British residential property, not sales listings. Some of these properties are currently for sale with estate agents, and others are being prepared for sale by owners.
