Edinburgh Solicitor Property Centre claims to have reached what it calls a “major milestone” in its new e-conveyancing service called Central Conveyancing.
The system, developed between ESPC and BDP Software for Estate Agencies, aims to speed the conveyancing process as well providing an easily accessible and transparent electronic track record for all parties to a transaction.
The system was testing online and offline with some ESPC members and is now to be rolled out to a so-far unspecified wider number of ESPC offices. “This further testing will allow for a fully-developed platform to be available nationally in the near future” says a statement from the centre.
“The system we’ve created offers an unrivalled level of capability. Not only has it been carefully designed to be user friendly, it has the ability to greatly improve risk management assuring all parties a secure and supported experience” explains ESPC chief executive Paul Hilton.
“Conveyancing Central will create a system whereby as soon as a property is marketed a new case will be automatically created alleviating the need for double keying information. Once a buyer is found all key stakeholders will have access to the case including purchasing and selling solicitors, the home seller and buyer and their legal search providers” he says.
Just over two months ago Veyo, set up by the Law Society and IT firm Mastek (UK), announced it was being rolled out to an unspecified number of users across England and Wales.
