Through SmartQuote’s streamlined application process, advisers and their clients can also benefit from reduced exposure to disclosure risk, with customers no longer needing to answer a series of complex questions about their home which they may be unsure about. The easy-to-use software will also provide advisers with access to Legal & General’s latest product offerings Home Insurance Plus and Home Insurance providing improved features, such as increased buildings and contents sums insured. More information on these products can be found on the Legal & General Adviser Centre

SmartQuote is the latest in a series of innovations from the FTSE 100 insurer aiming to streamline the application and claims process for advisers and home insurance customers.

Simon Hird, Director of Broker and Intermediary, Legal & General, General Insurance: "With SmartQuote, we are redefining the rules of how advisers and their customers get a quote for home insurance and challenging any lingering misconceptions about the quotation process. Gone are the days of endless questions and the home insurance journey being considered a hassle or time-consuming.

With research showing that one in four households has no contents cover [1], it’s clear that customers are too often ignoring the importance of protecting their home. Advisers can play an integral role in combatting this by ensuring their clients are properly protected in case of any eventualities and with the launch of SmartQuote for Intermediaries this has become easier than ever before.

At Legal & General, we’re committed to using technology to find solutions to make advisers and their customers’ lives as easy as possible. We believe SmartQuote will revolutionise the intermediary market by making home insurance quotes quicker and simpler for everyone involved."
