Buying a home is expensive, things can go wrong so I always recommend to clients that they consider Homebuyer Protection Insurance. 30% of agreed sales fall apart – gazumping for instance is making an unwelcome return. There are a range of benefits which you may find reassuring starting at £60. There are a number of providers but one of the easiest is via HomeOwners Alliance.

There is also an innovative product from Gazeal. It’s a financial guarantee ( a bit like an insurance product above) that gives buyers and sellers more certainty when they agree a deal. For a modest premium both parties sign an agreement and if either party backs out without a good reason then the other party gets, say, £10k. Whether a reason is acceptable is judged by the underwriters and a QC sits in ultimate judgement. The premiums vary depending on the size of the cover but is in the order of £750. More of my clients are including this kind of agreement with their offer. It strengthens their bid & gives comfort that the seller will be serious since they are bound in too.
