MDA enhances its UK Home Information Pack Search Service



    RICHMOND, BC, Feb. 19 /CNW/ - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd.
(TSX: MDA), a provider of essential information solutions, announced today
that it has developed an information solution called HIP Search Alert, that
will allow the home buyers solicitor to replace or refresh the search content
they receive in a HIP provided by the seller.
    HIP Search Alert will provide online and telephone support for customers
and prospects receiving a HIP from the sellers solicitor when acting for the
buyer. This managed service will replace the HIP search with an official
search or refresh the personal search, as well as add further diligence
searches, such as environmental searches.
