The pandemic geared the property sector towards ‘digital by default’ legal forms and one property data provider has become the first to set the ‘Gold’ standard for its conveyancing clients to speed up transactions during the current property boom.

X-Press Legal Services South and West Yorkshire has been awarded the first ever Gold standard partnership with leading legal software innovator FormEvo and for its commitment to delivering the very best supply chain end to end security service for local solicitor firms and homebuyers.

UK average house prices increased by 7.5% over the year to January 2021, new government data revealed, with house prices in Yorkshire and the Humber climbing an average of 10.9%. X-Press is helping its clients keep up with the property ‘boom’ by accessing over 2,000 cloud-based property transaction forms that are updated in real-time, feature secure transfer of data and greatly speed up the property transaction process.

Helen Foster, co-owner of X-Press Legal Services South and West Yorkshire comments: “The pandemic drove us to launch innovative new digital services for our clients. This new partnership offers our clients the flexibility of being able to share real-time data securely with colleagues and home-buyers. Buyers can fill in the necessary forms on their devices at home, which will then be automatically available to their solicitor, which makes the process more accurate and also quicker for both parties.”

The legal services firm now offers its conveyancing clients an integrated solution with both and FormEvo and the digital turnaround can take just 48 hours.

Claire Ide, co-owner adds: “This new partnership means our clients across South and West Yorkshire who are coping with the increase in property transactions will benefit from a reduction in errors, version control and the ability to continue to work remotely with complete cyber compliance.”
