Goldsmith Williams launches international sister company

To coincide with Mortgage Expo, Goldsmith Williams has announced the launch of a sister company to work exclusively in the international market.

The company which will be branded Goldsmith Williams Overseas is dedicated to all aspects of the international market and will offer exclusive services designed to benefit introducers and their clients.

As well as providing brokers and their clients with international conveyancing services the company will also offer competitive finance solutions, currencies exchange, property finding services and tax advice.

The idea behind this company is to provide brokers with a one-stop-shop for all the services required for any client wishing to purchase property abroad.

Goldsmith Williams has spent many months building up a panel of highly experienced English-speaking legal firms and piloting the service provided by each firm.

This pilot has proved to be extremely successful and the overall service has been welcomed by many introducers.

To access the services of Goldsmith Williams Overseas, brokers simply log onto the Goldsmith Williams website when their clients are looking to purchase property abroad.

Brokers will then receive a legal and administration fee for all conveyancing instructions as well as referral fees for all other business introduced to the panel of recommended service providers.

Nia Jones, international business development manager at Goldsmith Williams, says: We have worked closely with all service providers on our panel and are confident that they can provide a competitive and high quality service.

“There is no need for brokers to shop around trying to find reputable players in the market or the most competitive solutions for their clients. Everything can be arranged through one company, generating up to five income streams for the broker.

Feedback from brokers has shown that both brokers and their clients want reassurance and expert advice when arranging mortgages, legal services, tax advice and currency exchange.

“Through our international connections we firmly believe that we will be able to offer this assurance.
