Lexsure’s COMPLETIONmonitor is an online pre- and post-completion checklist for residential conveyancing lawyers. Supported by the CML and PI insurers such as AmTrust. It is a unique risk mitigation tool.

This system optimises the way you can demonstrate to lender panels that you are, and can stay fully compliant with their instructions, with notifications given on First Direct’s changes. Even though using the software is not a condition for acceptance on the First Direct panel, demonstrating you can stay up to date with First Direct’s Handbook requirements is a helpful support to your application to their lender panel and, just as importantly, protect your firm’s panel status.

The software generates real-time alerts, automatically produces SRA and CQS reports, and will increase your firm's efficiency. It is also user friendly, cost-effective and, for many firms, results in a PII saving.
