Today OneSearch Direct announced that it has integrated Stewart Title’s indemnity policies within OneSearch Direct’s online portal, enabling users to obtain Quick Quotes and order policies through a streamlined workflow. To celebrate the launch, OneSearch are hosting a prize draw, giving all Quick Quote users the chance to win a £250 Amazon card AND £250 to the charity of the winner’s choice.
OneSearch Direct, provider of the largest CON29 database in the UK, have adopted the Quick Quote calculator in response to client feedback and growing demand within the conveyancing industry. Now available on OneSearch Direct’s website, Quick Quote does not require registration to use. Additional improvements for this integration means there will also be more information for lead times, allowing the user to post and pre-date applications. Quick Quote offers the complete and extensive range of Stewart Title indemnity policies, including:
- Lack of Building Regulation Consent (Inc. FENSA)
- No Local Search (Lender only)
- Freehold Restrictive Covenant(s)
- Chancel Repair (No Search)
- (Fully assignable) FENSA and other installation certificates only
Lidia Quinlan, Head of Sales, OneSearch Direct, comments:
“The Quick Quote calculator has been very well received by our beta testers, and could not be easier to use. All you have to do is fill in a few short details, select your policy (you can also have multiple policies in one quote) and select “Get Quote” – your results are returned immediately on the same page, and you also have the option to print your results.
“We’ve noticed an increased appetite for indemnity insurance in recent years, undoubtedly due to horror stories when policies aren’t in place for things such as defects in title and missing documents. As we grow into a much more risk-averse industry, it’s considered remiss to leave things to chance and hope nothing comes out of the woodwork, sometimes literally!
“Sceptics have voiced concerns in the past about indemnities being used as an alternative to further investigation, but we’re confident there’s a necessary place for indemnities within some property transactions, whether that’s to protect against a missing FENSA certificate, or absent landlords, or even the Church of England knocking at your door.
“At OneSearch, we are with you on this. It’s in our nature to be on high alert when detecting and mitigating risk, and this is why our own PI claims history is impeccable. Risk prevention is our ethos, it always has been, and this is what makes me especially pleased about our relationship with global leaders Stewart Title.”
Stephen Smith, Stewart Title’s UK Country Manager, comments:
“At Stewart Title, we believe in building strong partnerships, and we’re proud to have OneSearch Direct as a partner. Our relationship further enables us to provide protection for residential and commercial property owners and their lenders.
“Over the years, our commitment to innovating and improving our systems to meet the needs of our customers and the ever-changing market has remained constant. Advancements such as the Quick Quote integration with OneSearch Direct is another example of how we continue to develop new solutions to better serve our customers.”
