Welcome to TrustMark - Government Endorsed Standards Body
Wednesday, 28th October, 2015
Escrow protection in the construction sector is becoming almost mandatory.
Nowadays, in a construction transaction, it makes sense to use escrow as every buyer is guaranteed the work they were promised or their money back, and every builder is guaranteed 100% payment.
Builders in particular eliminate bad debt and never again suffer costly price reductions at the end of a job - just to get payment in. Builders who use escrow for every transaction often increase their take-home revenue by 10% or more by doing so .
And consumers are guaranteed satisfaction with the service.
With this background, we welcome our latest (but not only) escrow provider in the construction sector, TrustMark
You can find details of their escrow product (partnered with Transpact.com) here
We've added a fee calculator
Monday, 7th June, 2015
We've had quite a few requests to add a fee calculator, and we've now done just that.
Until now, we haven't seen the need as our charges are all clearly shown on our Prices and Additional Charges web-pages.
But to simplify matters even further for those who have asked, we have added a fee calculator. Transpact.com allows initial charges to be split between the payer and payee (buyer and seller), so for us a fee calculator is anything but simple.
The fee calculator we have added shows the total fee paid in total by the payer and payee (buyer and seller), and this can be misleading if compared to the fees of just one of the parties (at least one of whom, if not both, will be paying much less than the total fee shown).
Our fees also include the cost of the final payment to the client's bank account by bank transfer - something that other escrow services mostly do not include within their fee calculator.
