Commercial First has now resumed its service of providing and arranging the buildings insurance for applicants.
The provider is now offering the service after having changed its insurance provider.
Commercial First’s agent will contact the client on behalf of the intermediary to arrange the cover.
If intermediaries prefer to arrange the buildings cover themselves, this preference can be indicated on the Commercial First application.
Stephen Johnson, sales and marketing director of Commercial First, says: “Some intermediaries are happy to deal with buildings insurance for their clients, whereas very many prefer to concentrate on their core business of broking mortgages without getting involved in insurance business.
“We are delighted that we can now offer our intermediaries the option to use our own buildings insurance service, if they so wish.”
