Lloyd said: “Looking at a house on your phone, you’ll be able to see all the information allowing your buying adviser to give you a decision on the risk quickly.”

Conveyancing market bounces back in Q1 after poor 2017

The average firm processed 64 transactions in Q1, up more than 8% from the 59 in Q1 2017. This resulted in the busiest quarter for conveyancing firms since Q3 2016.

Those firms that only transact between five and 10 cases a month have continued to decline, with their business down 10% since 2014. However those firms that transact between 200 and 500 cases have seen business increase by 50% over the last four years.

“It is perhaps the fact that smaller firms can be more nimble to market movements and more quickly embrace technology that has allowed them to take advantage of increasing transactions.
