Lawyer Checker – the risk management tool for the modern conveyancer

With scam alerts from the SRA almost daily, conveyancing firms in particular are becoming more vulnerable to identity theft, and client purchaser’s money is being put at risk.

By implementing Lawyer Checker into a conveyancing transaction, conveyancers are able to offer themselves, and their clients, a further cloak of protection.

By understanding where money is being transferred, knowing the account number provided by the vendor conveyancer has a history of frequent and large transactions, clients and conveyancers can feel more comfortable when sending large funds.

In order to adhere to Outcomes Focussed Regulations and all that a law firm’s COLP and COFA faces, a tool like Lawyer Checker only further serves to enhance the ‘belts and braces’ attitude to compliance now expected of the profession.
