Lexsure’s COMPLETIONmonitor is web-based pre- and post-completion checklist for residential conveyancing lawyers. It is supported by professional indemnity insurers. COMPLETIONmonitor is a unique risk management tool.

This system assists the way you can demonstrate to lender panels that you are, and can remain fully compliant with their instructions, with alerts on First Direct’s changes. Even though utilising the software is not a prerequisite for First Direct , demonstrating you can remain up to date with First Direct’s Handbook requirements is a helpful support to your panel application and, just as importantly, protect your panel status.

The system generates real-time alerts, automatically produces regulatory and CQS reports, and will increase your firm's efficiency. In addition it is simply to use, cost-effective and, for some firms, results in reduced PII premiums.
