Free2Convey, a conveyancing portal which provides estate agents, clients and conveyancers with free, real time access to chain status information, has launched a new Estate Agent Chain Creator.
The new facility has been developed specifically for estate agents, with special functionality which enables agents to create their own chains safely and securely in Free2Convey, entirely free of charge.
Matt Lancaster, one of the founding partners of Free2Convey, said, “Once the agent has added the chain information into Free2Convey, they send an invitation directly from the portal to the conveyancers in the chain, which asks them to join and update chain information too, so that everyone involved has real time access to chain status updates and that there’s a two-way flow of information.”
Land Registry search included
Providing immediate address validation, Estate Agent Chain Creator incorporates Land Registry’s title number search facility free of charge, where each property has a validated unique reference, helping to avoid errors and ambiguity.
The release of Estate Agent Chain Creator follows the recent launch of Docs4Home, which allows real time collaboration on relevant documents by all parties involved in a conveyance within a secure environment.
Matt added, “Docs4Home can be used in conjunction with Free2Convey and enables, for example, the upload of the Replies to Requisitions on Title which contain the seller’s conveyancer’s client account details. This would avoid the risk of redirection of completion monies by fraudsters intercepting bank details sent by email, which is something that’s on the increase.”
