Sesame sets eConveyancer target

Sesame Mortgages is setting itself a target of instructing more than 1,000 cases a month by the end of 2005 through its new eConveyancer system.

The service is expecting 250 instructions to be introduced to solicitors through Sesame members in January but expects this to inc-rease dramatically in the coming months.

The software is accessed through Sesame’s mortgage sourcing system and has attracted 1,500 advisers to date. Advisers can refer conveyancing work to local solicitor firms via Sesame’s link-up with the service and earn up to 180 in additional income for a completed sale and purchase.

IFAs’ existing lawyer contacts can be added to the eConveyancer panel. To date, more than 100 solicitor firms have been added to the panel.

Sesame product man-ager (mortgages) Andy Young says: “It will become inc-reasingly important for adv-isers to manage their business in a compliant manner while improving customer service and enhancing revenue. Adopting technology will be essential to meet these objectives and reduce the regulatory burden.”
