UK Mortgages owner wins bubbly from eConveyancer

Zahur Chowdhry, owner of Luton-based UK Mortgages, has won a bottle of bubbly from online conveyancing specialist eConveyancer.

Paul Dobbs, account manager at eConveyancer, awarded Chowdhry a magnum of Moets finest at the recent Mortgage Expo event, held at Earls Court in London. Chowdhrys business card was drawn from several hundred deposited on the eConveyancing stand over the two days of the show.

Chowdhry says: eConveyancer is fast, easy to use and flexible. Within a couple of minutes I can select a conveyancer on behalf of my client based on either cheapest cost, location or previous user ratings. When the client is happy, the conveyancer can be instructed at the click of a button.

The system also pays a decent commission when each case completes. I have no hesitation recommending eConveyancer especially as Ive just won a splendid bottle of champagne.

Dobbs adds: It was great to catch up with regular eConveyancer users such as Zahur at Mortgage Expo. The feedback we received was excellent and we were also successful in signing-up several hundred new users. During 2005 eConveyancer has gone from strength to strength and were looking forward to an equally successful 2006.
