We know the value of brokers so we pay them efficiently

From Karen Babington

I would like to respond to Andrew Botte’s letter (Mortgage Strategy October 16) and in particular his frustration at solicitors not disbursing broker fees.

We at easier2move pride ourselves on maintaining good relationships with referrers and the best and simplest way to do this is to make sure they get paid efficiently.

We guarantee to pay broker fees out of completion funds, provided we have a document signed by the client authorising this.

Our network of experienced conveyancers understand the value of leads generated from brokers and it is in our best interest to ensure they are paid promptly on completion.
