The software company aims to make it easier and quicker for intermediaries to complete the conveyancing process.

To coincide with the launch, Dashboard is also offering a 10 per cent discount on sale fees and purchase fees for business received in May 2006, excluding disbursements, for properties in England only.

David Aylmer, joint-managing director of Dashboard, commented: “In keeping with our existing e-trading links, the simple click-of-a-button use enables our clients to pass data around without the need for re-keying, thus eliminating errors and the need for re-keying, and so saving time. Previous studies we have done show we can save at least 20 minutes a case just in re-keying time through initiatives like this. This integration has the added benefit of enabling our clients to earn money from the service too so it’s a win-win for everyone.”

The service offered includes fixed conveyancing fees and no fee is paid if the case does not complete.

Technology is also a key part of the service, with online case-tracking and text message updates for the broker.

Dashboard also offers an option to add solicitors to its panel if a broker wanted to use the service but maintain links with an existing solicitor.

Lisa Newey, account manager of Easier2move, said: “Conveyancing is a simple way to earn revenue while also enabling you to control your pipeline. All solicitors on the Dashboard Conveyancing service are on the panels of all major prime and non-conforming lenders. In addition you get paid £100 each transaction and receive comprehensive online case progress reports.”

David Mead, director at Flexible-mortgage.net, said: “It’s not totally unique but anything online that helps speed up the conveyancing process and offers a good service to clients is always welcomed.”
