Two new reasons why mapping properties needn’t be a challenge for conveyancers

tmgroup logo 200Fresh from the release of an update to their new commercial property portfolio tool, tmgroup have announced the launch of two new time-saving mapping features to help conveyancers streamline their property transactions.

The two property mapping services have been developed in close collaboration with conveyancers from across the industry and integrate with the Land Registry in order to save time and hassle when creating cases and conducting title investigation.

Map search

The Map Search facility enables conveyancers to recreate the Land Registry Map Search service from within tmgroup’s platform for conveyancers, tmconvey, by creating cases and ordering OC1’s directly from a map. It saves you time by making it quick and easy to carry out title investigations.

Conveyancers can:

  • Quickly establish whether land or property is registered
  • View the location of registered land or property
  • Obtain title numbers, details of freehold or leasehold tenure and other registered interests
  • Order OC1’s (registers and plans) straight from the map

Mapping data layers

The enhanced mapping data layers provides conveyancers with aerial imagery and Local Authority boundaries layered over the map, helping them to make informed decisions on a property from the outset, saving time and hassle.

Conveyancers can:

  • Filter different data layers over maps when plotting properties
  • Get access to more information from within the same view

Sales and marketing director Ben Harris said:

“Fresh from the update to our Land Registry Extract Tool last week, we’re bringing two further customer-led developments to our system to save conveyancers lots of time in their property transactions.

“Our new Map Search feature brings the Land Registry’s MapSearch functionality right into tmconvey, which means that conveyancers no longer need to visit two websites and rekey information; whilst our enhanced mapping data layers provide property information up front helping users make informed decisions earlier on in the transaction.”

The rise of the multi-disciplinary lawyer: A challenge for legal education

Catrina Denvir

The legal profession has been on the receiving end of much hype regarding the impact of technology. Recent commentators purport that the aspiring lawyer must be a triple threat, possessing knowledge of the law, coding expertise, and in-depth knowledge of legal technology. Yet, focusing on legal technology risks overlooking the need for skills that transcend latest fads. Legal technology is a means by which to handle data: to organise it, record it, extract it, analyse it, predict from it and leverage it. Quantitative and statistical literacy – the ability to understand, apply, visualise and infer from data – underpins technological literacy and yet receives very little attention from those who encourage innovation in the legal curriculum.
