Exchange in conveyancing online deal

The Exchange is teaming up with solicitor eConveyancer to add a free online conveyancing referral service to brokers and intermediaries subscribing to its Exweb software.

Exweb eConveyancer will offer real-time access to individual conveyancing illustrations of its network of solicitors, enabling IFAs to complete business transactions through the portal.

Advisers can earn up to 100 for each remortgage or purchase and up to 200 for a combined sale and purchase transacted through the site.

The service offers the facility to customise the users’ panel adding solicitors if they are not listed and allows intermediaries to search for illustrations based on price performance or distance from their office or the client’s property. The Exchange will collate feedback from clients and brokers following the completion of each case, which then drives its solicitor ratings tables.

Econveyancer director Nigel Hoath says: “We have based eConveyancer on the same strengths as Exweb. It allows intermediaries to source and compare illustrations from leading suppliers in a quick and efficient manner. Our partnership with The Exchange will ensure that Exweb’s 21,000-plus subscribers are able to benefit from the solution.”

The Exchange managing director David Child says: “This partnership is evidence of The Exchange’s commitment to provide users with the most comprehensive package of services. Exweb eConveyancer will stand alongside the 24 services already offered as a key services to our users.”
