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.

How to make a case to the unconverted

Jonathan Whittle

The prospect of change is a daunting one, whether you’re a global firm or a small one. You might think that your firm’s working practices are fine, or that there’s no value in altering the way you do things because of the disruption it would cause. You might even see the benefits of using a different methodology, but still refuse to put the effort in to implement it – and you wouldn’t be alone. From our research in the 2016 report, The Riddle of Perception, we know that 73% of lawyers believe that adapting to change is not where their strength lies. However, it’s no longer optional.
