Norwich and Peterborough Building Society Conveyancing Lender Panel Compliance Tool

Lexsure’s COMPLETIONmonitor is an online pre- and post-completion checklist for property lawyers. Supported by the Council of Mortgage Lenders and PI insurers such as AmTrust. It is a unique risk mitigation tool.

This system is the only way you can prove to lender panels that you are, and can stay fully compliant with their instructions, with automatic updates on Norwich and Peterborough Building Society’s changes.

The system generates real-time alerts, automatically produces compliance and CQS reports, and will enhance your firm's efficiency. It is also user friendly, cost-effective and, for some firms, results in reduced PII premiums.
