abode conveyancing is a company helping people buying and selling
their house to find a specialist conveyancing solicitor at a very good rate. They have negotiated prices
for solicitors which are far better than the client can receive by contacting the firm direct;
solicitors pay a fee of 50
for each referral. The firms involved use email at every opportunity
instead of traditional mail and use the abode online case tracking system which emails
or sends SMS updates when a change takes place on their file. Clients can also login to check their case progress.
Conveyancing Marketing Services is
an agency which puts members of the public looking for conveyancing services
in touch with a solicitor or licensed conveyancer. The company, established in 1995,
has around 60 firms on its panel. Potential clients fill out a questionnaire online
and receive, by email , immediate quotations from CMS on behalf of certain firms on the
panel. They are then contacted by telephone (by CMS) to explain the quote. The site
apparently generates around 500 genuine enquiries a month.
CMS monitor the service through to completion, and can remove firms from the panel if they are not satisfied.
Landlord-Law is a membership service for residential landlords and tenants from
solicitor Tessa Shepperson. She provides "packaged" advice to landlords and also to tenants. For example, there are documents and forms
which can be filled in online, an extensive set of FAQ's (based on real questions sent in to Tessa), a number of interactive "trails"
allowing users to find the answer to problems by question and answer, and a Q and A page where readers questions are answered.
Part of the site is free but access to documents and more detailed information requires a modest subscription payment.

Through a network of solicitor estate agents firms across Yorkshire, Greater
Manchester and Lancashire, the Midlands, Wales and North-East England, SPS offers combined
