Declaration

I confirm that the information given in this form is accurate and complete to the best of my knowledge and belief. I am aware that to give false or misleading information it may result in my Agent status being removed and it is an offence to do so under the Financial Services Act 2012. By signing this agreement I give my permission for appropriate background checks (Inc. a credit check) to be carried out by Aston Scott Ltd.

I understand that any offer of facilities is subject to periodic review.

I would like to say that the level of service was excellent. You called back as promised, dealt with enquiries and answered my queries in an efficient and timely manner. It is, unfortunately, uncommon these days to receive good service and it made a pleasant change to deal with you and your company.

Mr Burgess

Once again, thank you for your help and for explaining - this is very reassuring. I am very glad that I have chosen Renovation Plan to insure me on this occasion. And because of how courteous and helpful you have been, I shall ensure that all future projects are insured with yourselves.

Paul Chappell

Many thanks for your help and prompt attention today. I am impressed with the understanding you and your company has of the requirements and as soon as we have a date for exchange of contracts I will be getting in touch with you again.
Based upon our limited interaction (and in particular your help and prompt response) I will have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.

Your assistance and excellent customer service should be rewarded and I would not hesitate to recommend your company to others.

Many thanks for your quick reply. I'll be in touch in due course to discuss increasing the level of cover as the project progresses. It is reassuring to work with such professional brokers. Many thanks again.

You've been an excellent company to deal with. I was despairing of getting any renovation insurance through the usual channels until saw you recommended on the website and it's been very straightforward ever since! Best wishes
