Significant risks with property firm data breaches

There can be significant risks when it comes to property firm data breaches. Any house sale will often involve far more than the usual personal details, and will often include a lot of financial information and banking account details. There may be wage slips and employment information for affordability checks, and passports or driving licenses for ID checks.

One simple data breach or leak could result in a wealth of very sensitive data being exposed. Any cyberattack could lead to the personal details of thousands of people being exposed, and it could involve incredibly sensitive data like those referenced above.

In a recent example, the Simplify Group firms had to shut down systems when they were hit by what was deemed to be a security breach. Buyers and sellers using Purple Bricks were reported to have suffered some severe delays and problems, and conveyancing law firm Premier Property Lawyers were also said to have had a number of systems offline as well.

Companies understood to have been affected by problems included conveyancers Advantage Property Lawyers, DC Law and JS Law, and some customers who had instructed them via services such as Fine & Country, My Home Move, Strike, and Yopa are understood to have been affected. This serves to show the extent of property firm data breaches and how many companies and customers can then end up embroiled in issues.

Claiming compensation – No Win, No Fee

Property firm data breaches can lead to significant distress caused by the loss of control of very personal and sensitive information. It is the distress that most people can recover damages for, and data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs are usually linked to the extent and nature of the information involved. As such, when it comes to ID and financial information, the distress can be horrendous, and this sort of information can be used by fraudsters to target victims.

I personally know the impact that this kind of data breach can have. I have suffered due to a data breach from a mortgage lender on two separate occasions, both of which caused a significant amount of distress. One wrongly affected my credit report, and the other resulted in a lot of financial data being leaked to the wrong person.

Needless to say, my two claims are pursuing well with The Data Leak Lawyers! I am benefiting from the genuine No Win, No Fee agreement in place, and so could you. Make sure to speak to our team for free, no-obligation advice here now.
