Homebuyer protection – are your clients using Buyer Protect?

Homebuyer protection – are your clients using Buyer Protect?

With protection products being launched left, right and centre in the property market, it is important for solicitors and conveyancers to choose their product provider wisely and not just based on price or convenience. Searches UK’s exclusive Buyer Protect scheme continues to be a market leader giving solicitors and conveyancers peace of mind that their clients are fully protected, up to the value of £2,050, should their property transaction fail to proceed to exchange of contracts.

As the first of its kind to enter the market in 2013, Searches UK’s Buyer Protect is an established product which grows from strength to strength due to its fantastic coverage. Similar reproductions have been launched into the market by competing companies, but fail to fully satisfy solicitors, conveyancers and their clients. To this day Searches UK remain proud to boast a 100% pay out history compared to similar products from other companies which appear to mimic this scheme.

Lisa Summerton, Sales & Marketing Director at Searches UK, commented:

“I initially launched a similar protection scheme in 2006 during the recession when it was evident that homebuyers were in need of reassurance that their costs would be protected should they look to make offers on properties. Searches UK have sculpted Buyer Protect to the needs of the homebuyer to ensure their money would be returned in the event of a failed purchase. There are too many products coming into the marketplace which appear wonderful at face value but, on closer inspection of the small print, are designed to rarely pay out. This defeats the object of a protection product and I would urge solicitors and conveyancers to choose a reliable protection product, such as Buyer Protect from Searches UK, which covers a homebuyer’s costs and will pay out if their property transaction does not complete for a reason covered under the terms of the scheme. Full transparency, with no small print, is imperative and we are proud to say our scheme is just that, which leads to very happy and satisfied solicitors, conveyancers and clients.”

Buyer Protect covers mortgage arrangement and broker fees, valuation fees, structural surveys, solicitor’s fees and disbursement costs for homebuyers, to name but a few.

Homebuyers are covered for a multitude of reasons with over 85% of property fall-throughs being protected for a reason covered under the terms of the scheme.

Searches UK’s Buyer Protect is the most comprehensive choice available from our protection products but if clients are looking for smaller coverage, contact Searches UK directly to discuss the alternative options available.

All clients of Searches UK have this protection scheme available to them, simply request that one of these products are added to an order, otherwise the homebuyer will not be covered.

Homebuyers, who have made use of Buyer Protect, praised it and said:

“We had two house purchase disasters within the space of 7 months. The first was found to have a major structural issue and the second property fell through when the vendor decided not to move. On both occasions we had paid for surveys, searches, mortgage administration costs and legal fees. Searches UK quickly and efficiently provided us with refunds of our costs for both properties. We would have lost thousands of pounds without Buyer Protect. I can’t recommend them enough.”
