Clients involved in property transactions require expert advice tailored specifically to their circumstances. In particular they require their solicitor to act in a timely and efficient manner in order to ensure the successful completion of their sale or purchase.
We help our clients achieve these objectives at competitive rates by going above and beyond expectations in the delivery of our advice and professional services. We are assisted in this with the use of the latest technology in our practice.
McKeowns can offer competitive quotes and guarantee to maintain the highest level of client care as:
- We drastically cut down the time spent on form filling in the conveyancing process. We have developed our case management system to streamline our service. These time saving measures allow us to reduce the time spent and pass these cost savings directly to you our client.
- Unlike may other firms we develop our own systems within the practice without need of external providers. This allows us to constantly remain at the leading edge of legal practice.
- Once we have obtained your instructions, your data then pre populates the various documents we need in dealing with your conveyance, allowing your solicitor more time to concentrate on the more important aspect of advising you and protecting your interests in the transaction
Example of some of our recent developments are:
We have developed our system to speed up the process of obtaining Local Authority and Central Authority Property Certificate requests which means that all necessary steps happen at the touch of a button on screen thereby saving as much as 30 minutes in valuable time which allows us to be more competitive in the fees we charge our clients
Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)
An important step in any conveyance is reporting to HMRC in respect of Stamp Duty payable. In order to meet our obligation on behalf of our clients we have created a system which not only prepares the required SDLT submission form but also submits it directly and securely encrypted to HMRC. Clients can then be readily reassured as to payment since the HMRC system in turn confirms receipt. All completed within a matter of seconds. When dealt with in the traditional manner the physical forms can take weeks to be processed
Online File Access
We want our clients to see exactly what happens during their transaction and we provide them with online (real time) secure access to their file through the secure portal on our website. Our client's can also grant consent to their estate agent should they wish. In this way both our clients and their agents can keep themselves up to date on developments in their transaction 24 hours per day, everyday of the week.
