One Search Assured

OneSearch Direct, the leading provider of private local searches in England and Wales, have announced the launch of their new OneSearch Assured service.

Announcing the launch, Ronnie Park, Managing Director, said: “Making the buying and selling process as simple, safe and stress free as possible has always been our number one priority. Our market leading searches have been helping buyers feel secure in their purchase for over 21 years, and we’re delighted that we can now offer greater peace of mind with our new OneSearch Assured pack.

“This Complete Conveyancing Protection Pack features all the principal searches required in property transactions, and includes an innovative Residential Abortive Transaction Insurance policy underwritten by DAS, Europe’s leading legal expenses insurer.

Buyers and conveyancers already rely on our data-driven searches to deliver the most accurate and up-to-date information on property in the market place. But, understandably, some are wary about ordering searches until late in the day in case the transaction should fall through and they are left to count the cost.

“Now, by adding insurance which covers up to £1500 of legal fees on aborted transactions, our customers are completely protected no matter what the outcome. This fantastic new wrap-around service combines the best information with the best protection, so housebuyers can make an offer with complete confidence and without the stress.

The new product is great news for conveyancers too. By making it easier to complete searches earlier in the process, any adverse information will be flagged up well before the completion, giving plenty of time to investigate and resolve any problems, or else withdraw safe in the knowledge that fees will be paid no matter what happens. The product is open to all firms, with no exclusions for those already offering no sale, no fee.

Lawyers must now draw on the data and drive change

Chris Marston 2014

The results from this year’s legal services consumer tracker survey make for interesting reading. In its sixth year, the research finds that a firm’s reputation continues to grow in importance, holding its top slot as the number one factor influencing choice of lawyer, with price remaining a strong second, reflected in a shift towards higher numbers of fixed-fee transactions. Alongside, it reports that trust in lawyers has declined to 42%, from 47% in 2012. It’s useful information as far as it goes, but what is the sector going to do with it?
