Property Butler, part of Sort Limited, has introduced a new conveyancing and concierge service for estate agents.
It will provide a tailored proposition to estate agents, especially useful to agents looking to ensure their clients are properly represented by conveyancers right from the beginning of the house purchase process.
Property Butler offers agencies a white labelled online portal to a select conveyancing panel. This means that estate agency advisers can produce accurate quotes, instruct online and then be able to access progress reports 24/7 via their desktop or by smartphone or tablet app.
In addition, Property Butler will be offering ‘Fee Guard’ and ‘Concierge Service’. Free to clients, Fee Guard covers disbursement fees for unforeseen events to a value of £1,500. Concierge Service provides a bespoke service for estate agencies to pass referrals and let the Property Butler team convert the opportunities
Property Butler will be run by Tim Price, who has a 25-year career in estate agency and property markets with Parkers and Legal & General and then providing ancillary services to the industry through ONN Financial and The Live Organisation.
He said: “Conveyancing is one of the key areas of any property transaction, but is traditionally slow with poor communication to estate agents and their customers. This can and does lead to operational frustrations and poor sales pipeline control for the property professional, which is why we believe that Property Butler’s proposition will appeal strongly to estate agents.
“At its heart, Property Butler’s proposition puts the estate agent in the driving seat by offering competitive conveyancing services early in the purchase process, which will go a long way to improving pipeline control and communication with the client. Sales progression benefits from Property Butler’s real time pipeline updates, through the portal, email and app notifications.
“Our solicitor partners are integrated which means you receive updates as they happen ensuring you are always informed.”
