Collaborative Conveyancing Solutions (CCS)
Searches that are bound by the Search Code, protecting the Seller, Buyer and Lender, are Property and NOT Client Specific. As such it doesn't matter WHO orders them but WHEN they are ordered.
The market is currently at the brink of a conveyancing melt down and many transactions will simply not make the SDLT holiday deadline due to delays with Searches and Mortgage Offers. Stress levels are rising and many firms are dealing with the frustrations of their numerous clients already.
Property Searches Direct are innovating and driving change, to secure a better start for property transactions enabling all stakeholders to help where they can. Collaboration between the Conveyancer and their network of Estate Agent introducers can only be a good thing. It will not solve all the issues, but it will certainly help. Both sides have recently been pointing the finger at each other, but neither party is perfect on their own.
We don’t have a magic wand, but we are offering FREE platforms for both Conveyancers and Estate Agents so they can work smarter, together. The platforms will be branded to the Conveyancer to offer peace of mind for all parties, but championed by the Agent, as it supports best practice for the future health of transactions.
The Collaborative Conveyancing Solution enables agents to better prepare their clients for selling and equip them with the tools to gather pertinent information far earlier in the process, ideally at the instruction and marketing stage. Sellers completing protocol forms as they go to the market and ordering the Searches for their future buyer has to be a step in the right direction.
Imagine receiving the protocol forms from prospective clients in your region before they are even under offer.
Imagine receiving an acceptable ID/AML* report for the client upfront
Imagine being delivered the Searches ready to be sent out to the buyers Conveyancer along with the contract.
Imagine having far more answers to questions than ever before.
Imaging how much faster transactions could proceed.
Now stop imagining and let us help you to work more collaboratively with your Agents. Here is an example of what the platform looks like.
It consists of:
Information for Home Buyers and Sellers
Access to Protocol Forms for completion by Seller
Back Links to Your Website (most appropriate page)

We are NOT looking to displace any of your current relationships with Agents, only to enhance them.
We are simply looking to help you to collaborate with your introducers, for you to win more work and to help gather more vital upfront information, we will make money on Search Orders placed Directly by clients in our online shop. No conveyancer needs to get involved with the money trail for Search orders placed on our site.
