Give your clients peace of mind

Posted: 21/11/2014

Transactions can fall through for many reasons and one of the biggest concerns for your clients is the financial implications for them when this happens. It is estimated that at least 10% of transactions failed last year and the costs incurred include valuations, surveys, searches, disbursements and conveyancing fees.

Residential Abortive Transaction Insurance has been designed to safeguard clients against such losses giving them peace of mind and reassurance that if the property transaction fails the reimbursed costs can be put towards another purchase. The insurance covers all legal expenses up to a maximum of £1500 and includes conveyancing fees, survey fees, legal fees, disbursements and lenders mortgage arrangement fees.

The insurance cover applies once an offer has been made and accepted by the vendor and includes the following:-

  • The vendor withdrawing the property from sale following receipt of an alternative offer from another buyer.
  • The buyer having to withdraw from the purchase because of one of the following:-
    • An adverse Legal Search (as per policy definition)
    • The Mortgage lenders valuation being less than 90% of the accepted offer
  • Purchasers or vendor’s withdrawal due to :
    • Employers relocation not completing
    • Involuntary unemployment
    • Death, unforeseen illness or bodily injury caused by a sudden or specific accident

The policy is only £39 inc vat if purchased as part of your standard search packs or £79inc vat as a standalone product

Cover can also be arranged for your sellers’ costs by purchasing a separate policy.  You will of course appreciate that no Insurance can cover every eventuality and this policy is subject to certain policy terms and conditions, as detailed in the policy document.  The period of cover is valid for 365 days from the date of policy issue.  Cover can also be arranged for the seller by purchasing a separate policy.
