SimplyBiz Group selected as will writing partner for The Nottingham
APS Legal & Associates, part of The Simply Biz Group, has today announced a partnership with Nottingham Building Society to provide all aspects of estate planning to members across The Nottingham’s network of over 60 branches across nine counties.
A number of providers were involved in the tender process and assessed on areas such as their approach to client care, scale and experience within the field. Following its success, APS Legal & Associates will offer will writing services for The Nottingham from November 25th and members of The Nottingham can book an appointment in branch or over the phone.
The Nottingham is a top ten building society and estate agency which offers a broad range of building society services such as mortgages and savings accounts. APS Legal & Associates will join a selection of established third parties who work with The Nottingham, providing a broad range of services. This include RSA for home insurance, Wren Sterling for financial planning and Dignity for funeral planning.
Neil Stevens, Joint CEO of The SimplyBiz Group, commented:
“We are delighted that APS Legal and Associates has been selected as the estate planning partner for The Nottingham. After getting to know the ethos and founding principles of The Nottingham, we saw many alignments in our own approach of putting the customer’s needs at the heart of what we do and our passion for providing a holistic service.
“The importance of having a will in place has never been more evident and I applaud The Nottingham for offering its members access to this vital service. We look forward to being on hand to provide a high quality and face-to-face service.”
Tina Hayton-Banks, Director of Member Services for The Nottingham added:
“We are committed to helping our members plan, protect and save for a better financial future and having a will is a big part of that. We are really pleased to partner with APS Legal & Associates and provide all aspects of estate planning to members across our heartland. We are also proud to announce that those who are part of The Nottingham’s Member Rewards loyalty scheme* will receive will writing services at a discounted rate. We want to make it as easy as possible for members to ensure their wishes in relation to their estate and family are carried out as they would have wanted.”
