Conveyancing Searches are enquiries submitted to various authorities which provide you with more information about the property you plan to purchase. The authorities include Local Councils, the Environmental Agency, and Coal & Water Authorities.
Searches provide crucial information relating to the property, for example whether or not the road serving it is a publicly adopted highway, whether there are any mineshafts in the immediate vicinity, whether it is subject to any planning enforcement notices etc
During the conveyancing process, your Solicitor will conduct these searches on your behalf. It should be noted that searches are intended only to cover the legal aspects of a convincing purchase – conveyancing lawyers do not requisition a survey and will not report on the physical state of the property.
How a ‘Quote Referral System’ can potentially help you win business!
The Quotation and Referral System (QRS) is a key feature from our supplier partner for this service. It can be used internally as an enquiry handling, risk management and business development tool. Alternavitly it can also be used externally as a means to better connect with agents and brokers.
The CQS standard mandates a full audit trail for all conveyancing enquiries. QRS supports this requirement by capturing and tracking enquiries and quotations. The resultant data gives complete visibility over the speed, accuracy and thoroughness of enquiry handling – essential for any risk or quality assessment.
QRS provides management information and graphing tools to enable teams to more easily analyse their enquiry data. Users can view conversion rates of quotes (broken down by office or user), how long matters take to convert from enquiry to instruction and a detailed breakdown of reasons for non-conversion.
