Econveyancer adds Connect IFA and Connect for Intermediaries to panel

The move will provide all Connect brokers and appointed representative firms access to the platform conveyancer’s panel of more than 50 audited and benchmarked conveyancing firms, as well as other features.

The platform conveyancer says these additional tools include DigitalMove, which brings together key stakeholders in the homebuying and selling process, to improve communication and cut transaction times. It also includes Rapid Remortgage, which reduces this process.

Connect, founded in 1998, offers a range of specialist mortgage services for intermediaries in a network of over 300 appointed representative advisers.

In March, Connect sold a significant stake in the business to property group Mortgage and Surveying Services for an undisclosed sum.

Econveyancer director of sales Karen Rodrigues says: “This new partnership will provide Connect’s brokers and appointed representative firms access to a panel of conveyancers that is continually monitored and managed to maintain the best possible service standards.

Connect IFA director of mortgages Jane Benjamin adds: “Connect for Intermediaries and Connect Mortgages are rapidly expanding businesses and we constantly aim to be at the forefront of opportunity and choice for our advisers, while using the best solutions in the market at any time to help them to provide the best advice possible in the most efficient way.

“Working with more than 170 lenders our advisers are experts in their customer markets so this partnership aligns with conveyancers based on price, service and location to ensure our customers experience a first-class conveyancing service while delivering an additional income stream for our advisers.”
