London & European rebrands and relocate to the City

London & European has moved into the heart of the City and has rebranded its image.

The company says the changes reflect its evolution from a pure title insurer to a provider of solutions that enhance the speed, simplicity and security of property transactions.

Alan Smith, managing director of London & European, says: “Over the past 10 years, London & European has built upon its knowledge and experience of the property market to become much more than a title insurer.

“Weve committed considerable resources to building a range of products and services designed to make property transactions faster, simpler and more secure for lenders, borrowers and conveyancers alike.

“Weve developed web-based panel management and legal indemnity solutions that support the move towards e-conveyancing and, looking at the business models operated by so many of todays lenders, weve revolutionised our title insurance policy wordings to create an offering that we believe is capable of acting as a true credit enhancement tool.

“As we restructured our business proposition, we outgrew both our premises and our brand image. The move to the City represented the ideal opportunity to refresh our branding to reflect where our business is and where it is heading rather than where weve come from.”
