Online service for mortgage intermediaries

A new online service for mortgage intermediaries is being launched by 121 Legals, a network of solicitors, giving them access to a panel of legal professionals and conveyancing quotes.

Intermediaries can register for the service free of charge and pick their preferred solicitors from a list, banded according to price. Every time they log onto the service, details of these solicitors will appear alongside basic quotes for conveyancing.

As an introduction fee, intermediaries will get 15 per cent of the solicitor&#39s fee on completion of each conveyancing transaction.
