Sellers can start conveyancing as soon as they list – claim
A digital resource hub for estate agents launches a new product today, claiming to shorten transaction times.
Sort Move, which has been operating for the past year, claims its new Fast-Start service allows sellers to become ‘Sale Ready’ by completing conveyancing paperwork online as soon as a home goes on the market.
The product allows clients to fill in documents via a desktop, tablet or mobile device. It also packages Biometric ID and AML checks, as well as digital signatures on all completed paperwork.
The product has undergone beta-testing with some agencies whose testimonies have been released to the media.
“This enables sellers to sign up as soon as they put their property on the market, complete ID checks and preliminary forms and paperwork to be ‘contract ready’ as soon as a buyer is found” says Nicholas Webber of Westcoast properties.
“I can do these quotes, tailor them to each client, include my own branding and offer them a unique platform. I love the updates I get for sales going through and also the incentive is very good for each file completion” according to Leanne Fuller O’Grady of Fuller O’Grady estates.
Sort Move – created by Sort Ltd, which works in the mortgage intermediary market – describes itself as “a digital portal specifically with estate agents and their clients in mind.”
It says its products “add value to the customer journey and provide another income stream for the agent, through fair and transparent referral fees. These products are backed up by a hand-picked panel of quality conveyancers, seamless partner integrations and a support team of home move advisers.”
