Land Registry-DPS integrationThe recent integration between DPS’s conveyancing software and Land Registry’s Business Gateway allows users to submit their AP1 form online, straight from their case management system.

DPS Convey saves solicitors time by entering all the relevant information stored within the system into the form automatically, while allowing them to amend it if necessary and attach any supporting documents associated with the matter that they would like to submit with the form.

As the online submission of the AP1 implies a reduction in the price of the service, solicitors are able to pass this saving on to their clients and offer them more competitive rates. Wanting to make the process smoother for their clients and help them meet the necessary requirements for successful submissions, DPS have undertaken this integration work whose final result is the real-time data transfer to and from their case management software and Business Gateway. Once completed, the submission is then saved against the right file in DPS.

All new and existing users can access this functionality at a click of a button.

Osman Ismail, DPS Software’s managing director commented on the news: “The end goal of the recent integration is enabling law firms to further reduce the amount of manual work and accelerate the completion of property transactions thus becoming more profitable and  efficient. As high volumes of work are fortunately a common denominator in today’s conveyancing market, completing transactions time-effectively has become of major importance. The bridge between our system and Business Gateway enables users to do just that-deliver a fast service that generates profits.”

“Land Registry is pleased that DPS Software is now integrating with our systems through Business Gateway, our automated service for case management systems to access our property records,” said James Rippin, Business Gateway product manager at Land Registry. “This will enable their clients to have seamless, automated connectivity when lodging applications to change the register– improving accuracy and speed whilst reducing risk.”

DPS’s conveyancing system was designed to respond to the needs of today’s conveyancing specialists by providing them with over 600 ready-to-use templates and features including online SDLT submission and standard & amendable workflows for conveyancing work.
