Lawyer Checker – the risk management tool for the modern conveyancer

Print This Post

3 September 2014


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.

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
