On-line Estate Agent Launches Intermediary Arm

Online UK estate agent Yopa is reported to have begun an operation to sell insurance and other financial services to the public.

The firm is said to have created Scout Financial Services and the plan is to offer products to the wider public and not just those who buy or sell their properties with the firm.

Neil Weston, heading up mortgage sales, said: “With Scout we’re offering a one-off lifetime fee, meaning we can support our customers through every stage of their financial lives.”

“As well as mortgages, our brokers are able to offer additional services such as Life Insurance, Critical Illness Cover and Income Protection. This is an exciting time for Yopa as we venture into the Financial Services space and look for new ways to improve customer experience” said Mr Weston.
