Easier2move offers instant payment facility for referrers

Easier2move is launching a new payment facility that will allow payment on the day of completion for referrers.

Referrers can chose to be paid via BACS or by cheque. The payment system is available on all remortgage and sale and purchase work.

Karen Babington, sales and marketing director of easier2move, says: “We are continually asking our brokers how we can improve our service. One subject of concern with brokers is the late payment of mortgage procuration fees as well as other commission fees and so the introduction of payment of conveyancing fees on the day of completion adds a welcome boost to a broker’s cashflow.”
