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 requirement for solicitors to behave ethically in modern legal practice is more relevant than ever. Solicitors are still held in fairly high regard by the public, although that esteem is on the wane according to last year’s Trusted Professions poll by Ipsos Mori. Lawyers are less trusted than teachers and doctors but at least we prevail over accountants and bankers. We still hold a position of trust but we must work to hold that position. The current Solicitors Regulation Authority proposals to revise the Handbook are evidence that work still needs to be done.
