A conveyancing portal claims it allows estate agents and other parties access to a property transaction to see conveyancing progress across and entire chain.
Free2Convey says it is working with conveyancing companies to integrate case management systems which can be viewed online.
Once using the portal, a solicitor or conveyancer in a chain invites other legal professionals involved in that chain to join the service, which also provides law firms with an online deal room for collaborating with other parties on documents, Lawyer Checker's Account & Entity Screen search, and some access to the Land Registry’s Business Gateway.
The company behind the portal, Pracctice Ltd., says development work on the portal has been going on for 18 months and it is now a live product which agents can use with options for integrating with a law firm’s case management software.
“In the next few weeks we’ll be adding further functionality meaning that law firms using [it] can securely exchange documents and information with others in the conveyancing chain, including estate agents and clients” claims a spokesman.
He says there has been “phenomenal interest” from agencies and law firms.
