WITH the COVID-19 pandemic gearing the property sector towards more ‘digital by default,’ Warrington-based X-Press Legal Services, has become the first to set the ‘Gold’ standard for its conveyancing clients to speed up transactions during the current property boom.
X-Press Legal Services Cheshire, Merseyside and Manchester, based at Olympic Park in Warrington, has been awarded the first ever Gold standard partnership with leading legal software innovator FormEvo and SDLT.co.uk for its commitment to delivering the very best supply chain end to end security service for local solicitor firms and homebuyers.
UK average house prices increased by 7.5% over the year to January 2021, new government data revealed, with prices in the North “flying up” with the North West being the region which saw the highest annual growth in average house prices (12%). Now, conveyancing solicitors from Cheshire, Merseyside and Manchester handling this house price ‘boom’ can access over 2,000 cloud-based property transaction forms that are updated in real-time, feature secure transfer of data and greatly speed up the property transaction process.
Jane Lister, of X-Press Legal Services X-Press North Cheshire, Merseyside and Manchester said: “The pandemic propelled us to launch innovative new digital services for our clients across our region. This new service offers the flexibility of being able to share real-time data securely with colleagues and their homebuying clients who can, for instance, fill in their ‘Fixtures and Fittings’ form on their iPad at home and it will be automatically available to their solicitor, which makes the process more accurate and also quicker.”
The legal services firm now offers its conveyancing clients an integrated solution with both SDLT.co.uk and FormEvo and the digital turnaround can take just 48 hours.
Jane added: “Our legal clients across the North West handling the increase in property transactions will benefit from a reduction in errors, version control and the ability to continue to work remotely with complete cyber compliance.”
