EDIT: Since publishing this article yet another case of a residential resale property has completed in a remarkable timescale of just 16 working days.
WeCOMPLETE reports that through its platform, launched in September, buyers and sellers are completing in 28 days, over halving the time of what would be considered a best-case scenario.
Amy Simmons, CEO of WeCOMPLETE says, ‘we are more than pleased that cases are completing in days via the WeCOMPLETE platform. We have managed to achieve unrivalled efficiency, transparency and communication through technology, which we are delighted that our clients’ and their customers find simple and easy to use.’
Ryan Lewis, 23, aspires to be a property investor and has rented for four years to save his first deposit and recently bought a property, completing on the 7th December 2020. Ryan wanted a conveyancer who would work online so he could participate in his purchase outside of work hours. Being his first purchase, he wanted to understand the process, so a conveyancer Powered by WeCOMPLETE was the obvious choice as the calendar and icon indicators helped explain the process from beginning to end.
‘I was told that the purchasing process was stressful, so I took my time to select a conveyancer, from the outset with the introduction to their online system I knew I was in the right hands. I found the system easy to understand, and every step of the process was clear to me. I chose the right team for me via a comparison quote; there was a good choice available. I signed the terms & conditions straight away in the system and was updated from thereon. I could see when the solicitor ordered the searches, and when they were returned, they were displayed and explained to me in the system. The documents were all available to me, anytime. That was really interesting. I took my time to try and understand them. I communicated in the evening through the messenger application, and my solicitor replied during their working hours. That suited me well. The app for the ID check was clever, and the completion of forms through the system was super easy too. It was enjoyable seeing the icon updates on my phone whilst at work, so I always knew what was going on. I didn’t find the process stressful at all and would do it again tomorrow!’ says Ryan.
Amy adds, ‘our hand-selected legal teams are working with us to produce a new, fresh approach to conveyancing, and we are pleased to be speeding up completions like Ryan’s in this difficult time. As the system expands to include the finest estate agents and introducers, more sellers and buyers will enjoy moving home at a pace that suits them and enjoy the efficiency that removes stress from their transaction journey through the WeCOMPLETE system. ‘
