Online conveyancing refers to when your licenced conveyancer or conveyancing solicitor has an online case management system rather than (or in addition to) the traditional business model. There are some benefits to be had from online conveyancing. The most obvious of these is the transparency of progress throughout the process. You will likely be provided with login details to the case management system which allows you to login at any time and check on the progress of your conveyancing process. This can include how far along you are with searches and the tracking status of your mortgage application.

An online conveyancer should do exactly the same things as a traditional conveyancer. In fact, more often that not the online conveyancer will be a traditional conveyancer or conveyancing solicitor with online capabilities. The kind of things your online conveyancer should complete include arranging for searches to be completed on your behalf, liaise with the other parties solicitors to arrange exchange and completion dates, deal with the transfer of the title with Land Registry and work with your mortgage provider to ensure the funds will be available when required.

Online conveyancing may be cheaper in some situations, however, this is likely to vary from solicitor to solicitor. It is always best to carefully read through your quote to make sure you are happy with the schedule of works and the associated costs.
In our opinion there isn’t much difference between traditional conveyancing and online conveyancing, particularly as the latter is still somewhat in its infancy. It is far more important to choose a solicitor or conveyancer based on their credentials, their experience and their reviews which will indicate the quality of service they provide. All of the solicitors on the 123 Convey network are SRA regulated so you can rest assured of their professionalism and expertise.
