    It would be useful for householder applications if the name and address in the site address details (Q2) could be predictive text from Q1 as with most applications the address is the same.

    Why can’t agents change their profile information ie default email address & address, phone number? In some cases the original email address may no longer be valid and telephone numbers may have changed.
