ETSOS Round-up

25th March 2013

Earlier this year we celebrated our third birthday – and what a birthday! We marked the occasion with a bit of a triple whammy as we’d been crunching the numbers to find that:

a) We now have 10% of the top 100 conveyancing firms, and 20% of the top 200, helping to propel growth in 2012 by a massive 43%
b) We have extended our already industry-topping product range to over 500 specialist reports, surveys and insurances, in addition to an unrivalled choice of personal and official searches for all 348 local authorities
c) We had processed our 250,000th search just days before we turned three

To help drive that share and sustain that growth, we’ve made a strategic investment in our sales and business development resource. Nathan Warren joins us as a sales executive; he’s got a great track record in our sector but when he found himself wanting a new challenge, he turned to the company that he couldn’t help but notice engendered a huge degree of loyalty amongst its customer base – ETSOS! We also welcomed David Opie as our sales support manager – David comes from outside of the property and legal sectors but with a great track record in sales. With his fresh perspective, he has already brought loads of insight and ideas into the business, and is currently focusing on improving relationships with our own referrer network.

We’re pleased to report that The Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC), who adopted ETSOS as its ordering platform of choice last summer, has now extended its usage of the system. In addition to the host of search, survey, risk and insurance products, SLC members can now enjoy one-click ordering of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs).

We’re still out and about lending support to both the legal and property communities. ETSOS is now one of five companies that form MLS Advantage, a new buying group for Manchester Law Society members. The group was delighted to be the principal sponsor of the recent glittering Manchester Legal Awards held at the Midland Hotel.

We’re also thrilled to be sponsoring the 2014 ESTAS awards for the first time. The ESTAS are the largest and longest running awards in the UK property industry, recognizing excellence amongst estate and letting agents as voted for by clients. Voting is open now and runs till the end of January 2014, with the final awards ceremony taking place in April 2014. For more information, please visit www.theestas.com

CPRs; the practicalities

In our previous blog, we looked at the definitions outlined by the CPRs. In this blog we’ll look at the practical application of CPRs, the sorts of scenarios that come up day in day out and what lessons we can learn from any enforcement action taken. (more…)

CPRs; the implications

In 2014 The Properties Misdescriptions Act was repealed and replaced with the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations, otherwise known as CPRs.

The main change was a shift in focus away from caveat emptor, or buyer beware, to greater transparency for those involved in the purchasing or renting of property where agents are historically famous for flowery language and an economic use of the truth! (more…)

Additional penalties for AML failures announced

HMRC have announced they will now levy a Penalty Administration Charge in addition to any penalty imposed for failure to comply with anti-money laundering regulations. (more…)

What do ID documents tell us?

Customer Due Diligence (CDD), which forms part of Know Your Customer or KYC, is an important tool in the estate agent’s armoury when it comes to fulfilling their obligations under the Money Laundering Regulations. (more…)

Residential Abortive Transaction Insurance

ETSOS are delighted to announce a tie up with insurance brokers Northcott Beaton to provide their residential abortive transaction insurance.  (more…)
