Flexible Payment Options

If you have a home insurance policy which offers legal cover, we can liaise with your insurers about providing you with advice regarding the circumstances of your claim. Often these policies allow you to nominate the legal representative of your choosing.

If you do not have legal cover we can agree with you a flexible payment schedule to enable you to spread payments over a fixed number of months to limit your up front expenses.
