Greater protection and peace of mind for your firm and for your client

It goes without saying everyone involved in the sale or purchase of a property wants things to go smoothly but with the best of intentions sometimes things do go wrong. The current economic climate and global pandemic has created further challenges.  Job uncertainty, serious illness as a result of COVID as well as the usual difficulties  

When a transaction falls through it can be devastating for clients and very often results in the loss of any costs already incurred in association with valuations, searches, and disbursements.  It can also lead to difficult discussions with clients about your own legal fees which also need paying.
