A conveyancing firm has launched what it claims to be one of the first ever apps for vendors and buyers in England and Wales.
The app - specially designed for clients of the firm Rowlinsons - allows users to access key documents and information on their transaction and check on progress 24/7 by linking directly into the firm’s internal system.
The firm will also be able to send letters and messages instantly and enable clients to electronically sign and return any documents, all through the app.
“The launch of our app will help with communication and updates, but also has the potential to significantly speed up transactions as key documents can now be signed and returned in minutes” according to the company’s director and head of property, Tom Parkinson.
All of Rowlinsons clients will be given the option of using the app at no additional cost and will receive a link from which they can download the app to either an Apple or Android mobile device.
The company insists the app “gives the client full visibility of the conveyancing process, explaining what happens at each stage and sends instant alerts when there is a new update or a document is received.”
The company says not only will clients benefit from improved accessibility and transparency, but the app will provide a more secure form of communication than email or Royal Mail post.
