Last year (2014), we decided to attend the Conveyancing Conference in Association with Modern Law Magazine for the first time.
Exhibitions are not something we normally get involved with, but after some persuasion from Modern Law’s Martin Smith, we decided to give it a go. The conference itself was a resounding success and the contacts we made from the event provided a good amount of new business over the coming 12 months.
This is one of the main reasons we have decided to take part in the event again this year, which this time is being held at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea on December 3rd. Oh…and of course, we also have a fabulous product we want to showcase!
MoveSafe provides insurance cover to people in the process of buying or selling a residential property. An increase in potential buyers, especially in the capital, has meant that popular locations and properties are more in demand now than they’ve ever been.
A friend recently attended more than 100 viewings in central London before finally having an offer accepted. They made numerous offers during this time and were gazumped on at least one occasion.
With a MoveSafe Insurance policy, any costs incurred such as surveys, searches and even Solicitors fees would have been covered. The Solicitor providing the policy is also able to make some money via a commission.
The premium can be as low as £90.00, so both buyers and sellers who have a policy can be confident about limiting any losses incurred during the process of sale or purchase.
A recent survey amongst perspective buyers/ sellers suggested that this kind of policy is something that would prove very popular and would lead individuals to actively seek out a solicitor selling the policy.
With mortgages still available at such a low rates, property prices rising and numerous deals around for first time buyers, surely now is the time that Solicitors, Estate Agents and Mortgage brokers should be looking to offer something more to their clients.
The MoveSafe policy can provide peace of mind to buyers and sellers alike and potentially prevent the loss of thousands of pounds.
