Every effort has been made to try to ensure that the marker is in the correct place wherever possible.

Safeguarding your information
Important information regarding cybercrime. We are aware that computer hackers are seeking to target property transactions to access funds. As we understand it, they will either hack a phone, tablet or PC, maybe by sending out a random email which mistakenly gets opened, or even whilst opening a website, which gives them access to that machine.
The reason for us mentioning this is to you is to alert you that once they have gained access, they can monitor email correspondence, without you knowing, throughout a transaction. Then, at a relevant point, e.g. just before exchange of contracts, they can send an email to a client mirroring that of their solicitor asking for funds to be transferred to a certain bank account. That money then, of course, disappears.
Fortunately, we have not had such an instance but, feel it important to highlight the fact that if you do receive an email requesting funds, it is worth double checking with the person concerned by phone that it is genuine and the bank details are correct, before sending money. This could, of course, affect other areas of finance beyond property. Many solicitors are starting to highlight this point now, but for safety, we would urge you to be vigilant and check before sending money or passing on any personal details regarding any bank or credit card information.
Referral Fees We may inform (on request) clients and prospective purchasers details of local services. These may include mortgages, conveyancing, general planning advice, surveys and valuations, estate agency services and removals.
Our policy is that we do not take referral fees for these introductions - except under the following circumstances : Should a person (introduced by us) to the mortgage or conveyancing services of London & Country Mortgages (L&C) - L&C will pay us 25% of any payment they receive from mortgage lenders. If that person engages the services of their recommended conveyancer, L&C will pay us £100 plus VAT for each completed sale and/or purchase instruction.
