Sometimes a property transaction can go on longer than anticipated, so it’s reassuring to know users of Lawyer Checker can benefit from a free of charge refresh. This is useful if there is a lag of several months before Exchange of Contracts, as it enables you to check that you’re still comfortable with transferring funds to the vendor’s conveyancer.
If you would like to take advantage of this refresh service, please email the Geodesys Customer Services Team with your original reference and postcode of the vendor’s solicitor. We will re-run the Lawyer Checker search and forward the results back to you.
Lawyer Checker is a simple but effective online service that allows you to gather further information on the vendor conveyancer that you are sending money to. When the account and firm details are submitted, Lawyer Checker will identify if there is a track record or previous use associated with that account. Fraud has become more prevalent in recent years, so it’s important to have a system in place to protect you and your clients.
