There are many risks involved when you make the big decision to submit an offer on a house. Losing your property to someone presenting a higher offer, or the seller withdrawing the property from the market are common causes of purchases falling through. There are many others, and besides the emotional stress of losing your dream home, without insurance against unforeseen events, you will also incur the wasted costs of money spent during the process.
With this in mind we are pleased to be able to offer our Premium Buyer Protection Insurance package to our clients. It is designed to protect you in an uncertain market where circumstances can change overnight.
A property purchase can fail due to the seller (vendor-driven failure), or the buyer (buyer-driven failure). We have insurance to protect you for up to 6 months.
Home Buyers' Protection insurance
The ultimate peace of mind and protection against a seller driven cancellation, covering you for the following, for up to 180 days provided you purchase a residential property within England and Wales :
Your insurance will cover you for one of the following events if it causes your purchase to fall through:
|£3 000 (Max)|
If you are buying a property on land subject to chancel repair, you will be legally obliged to contribute towards repairs to the chancel. The best way to protected against any Chancel liability is to insure against it, rather than to search. You are covered for up to £500 000 although the likelihood of a claim to that value is remote. You will however not be covered if you conduct a Chancel search before taking insurance, as you cannot insure for a known, pre-existing condition.
|£1 000 (Estimate)|
You can relax when paying for searches upfront. You will be covered as part of the Conveyancing Fee cover outlined above, for 6 months. You don't to not have to worry if the seller pulls out or under certain conditions you have to cancel the transaction.
