Conveyancing Liability Solutions Limited (CLS) market leading title and chancel insurance providers are delighted to announce that we will be changing insurance capacity providers from Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc to ERGO Versicherung AG for online insurance policies from 18 December 2014.

Excellent financial strength

As with Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc, ERGO is a subsidiary of the Munich Re Group. Therefore switching to Ergo will continue to offer:

  • The same AA- rating, the highest and most consistently rated cover in the industry
  • Most competitive premiums
  • In perpetuity policies
  • Expert in-house, legally qualified underwriters
  • Cover up to £3m online as standard

Changes to expect to your insurance policies

  • From 18 December 2014, all insurance policies from CLS online will be underwritten by ERGO Versicherung AG, UK Branch.
  • CLS will provide the same scope of insurance policies (ChancelSure & ConveySure) but they will be updated in structure with a brand new look and feel.
  • The cover of our policies has been expanded, so they can be issued online in more cases than ever before.
  • ‘Underwriting Criteria’ will be re-named to ‘Statements of Fact’ to ensure clarity on disclosure required by conveyancers.
  • Better cover for the same price

Existing quotations

Pre-18 December

All quotations issued by CLS on behalf of Great Lakes Reinsurance (UK) Plc will remain available to you and your clients until 18 December 2014 when the insurer changes.

Post-18 December

Quotations will need to be reissued (and therefore re-ordered) post the 18 December to include the new insurer and new cover.

&…a brand new look to the CLS suite of search products

To coincide with this change, CLS are updating and refreshing the look of ChancelCheck. ChancelCheckPremium and TitleChecker products. This change will also take place on 18 December 2014.

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
