The pandemic geared the property sector towards more 'digital by default' and one property data provider from Cowley, Oxford has become the first to set the Gold standard for its conveyancing clients to speed up property transactions.

X-Press Legal Services Thames Valley has been awarded the first-ever Gold standard partnership with leading legal software innovator FormEvo and SDLT.co.uk

X-Press Legal Services Thames Valley has been awarded the first-ever Gold standard partnership with leading legal software innovator FormEvo and SDLT.co.uk for its commitment to delivering the very best supply chain end-to-end security service for local solicitor firms and homebuyers.

UK average house prices increased by 7.5% over the year to January 2021, new government data revealed, with house prices in the south climbing an average of 9%. X-Press is helping its clients keep up with the property 'boom' by accessing over 2,000 cloud-based property transaction forms that are updated in real-time, feature secure transfer of data and greatly speed up the property transaction process.

Karen Underwood, owner of X-Press Legal Services Thames Valley comments: “The pandemic propelled us to launch innovative new digital services for our clients. This new partnership offers our clients the flexibility of being able to share real-time data securely with colleagues and home-buyers. Buyers can fill in the necessary forms on their devices at home, which will then be automatically available to their solicitor, making the process more accurate and also quicker for both parties.”

The legal services firm now offers its conveyancing clients an integrated solution with both SDLT.co.uk and FormEvo and the digital turnaround can take just 48 hours.

Underwood adds: “This new partnership means our clients across Oxfordshire and the Thames Valley who are coping with increased demand for property transactions will benefit from a reduction in errors, version control and the ability to continue to work remotely with complete cyber-compliance.”
