Search Acumen200Search Acumen has become the first conveyancing search provider to offer its clients access to My Legal Indemnity Shop, a ground-breaking new tool which gives conveyancers a one-stop shop to source competitive quotes and combine policies for legal indemnity insurance.

This new partnership will provide access to Search Acumen clients, as the online service becomes more widely available through this year.

My Legal Indemnity Shop has been developed by DUAL Asset Underwriting, part of The DUAL Group, the world’s largest international underwriting agency. It gives residential conveyancers a choice of legal indemnity quotes from a panel of insurers including RSA, Elite, and XL Catlin.

Conveyancers can review quotes for up to forty products, including common requirements for property transactions in England and Wales such as Chancel Repair, Building Regulations Consent and Search Indemnities.

Having made their selection, conveyancers can combine up to four products under a single quote without needing to arrange separate policies. Bespoke policies are available for anyone requiring more than four products to be rolled into one.

The partnership builds on Search Acumen’s commitment to deliver essential data to conveyancers and help simplify the due diligence process involved in property transactions.

It means conveyancers who need to secure legal indemnity insurance can move directly to My Legal Indemnity Shop once they have requested searches via Search Acumen’s streamlined portal: saving time and offering an extra service.

Andrew Lloyd, Managing Director of Search Acumen, comments:

“Our new partnership with DUAL furthers our commitment to think ahead and make life even simpler for conveyancers wherever we can. Searches are only one part of their job, and one of the challenges we repeatedly hear about is the time it takes for them to scour the web for legal indemnity quotes.

“With this new tool, they can move seamlessly from ordering their searches to gain quick and easy access to a wide range of competitive quotes, which are combined into one to suit their needs – all in a matter of a few clicks.

“It all adds up to a simple, headache-free experience which frees up valuable time and delivers a positive experience with minimum fuss.”

Ian Keith, Head of Underwriting at DUAL Asset Underwriting, said:

“Search Acumen have built their reputation on doing things differently and are a natural fit to help us bring My Legal Indemnity Shop to conveyancers’ desktops.

“It’s been a pleasure teaming up with them and we’re confident conveyancers will soon find the experience of arranging legal indemnity insurance just as simple as they find ordering their searches.”

The security of certainty

What are our considerations when looking to buy home or car cover? I would imagine price would certainly be amongst the considerations, but I’m confident that we would each weigh up whether or not our chosen insurer could meet any claims we might bring, and perhaps as importantly, whether they’d provide us with a hassle-free claims process were the worst to happen. Legal expenses insurance should be no different.
