Marketing manager Simon Godrich explained the reason for setting up the website:
“One of the good things to come out of the introduction of HIPs was increased competition in the search market, bringing the first real reductions in search costs, in some instances the cost of a whole HIP was less than the client would have paid for the searches alone before HIPs.
Since the suspension of HIPs we felt it would be good to offer Solicitors and Conveyancers the chance to continue to benefit from those price reductions. We have signed up a range of local and national Search providers giving them the chance to offer their services to a
wider audience at very competitive prices”.
Clients can log in to www.propertypads.co.uk and compare prices for a range of products including Conveyancing Searches, Energy Performance Certificates, Inventories and Gas safety Certificates. More products will be added to the site in due course.
Using a case tracking system, clients are able to monitor the progress of their order and save time and money into the bargain.
The site they say will also benefit Estate Agents and letting agents, private sellers and Landlords, indeed anybody involved in the property industry.
