When you instruct Holmes & Hills Solicitors to undertake your conveyancing and act for you in your purchase, you will be able to use the Holmes & Hills App.  With the Holmes & Hills App you benefit from being able to:

  • Deal with identification via the App, through a streamlined ID process – there is no need to send us your ID or attend any of our offices.
  • Easy completion of forms via the App – including formal Law Society forms, through your phone or tablet.
  • More secure exchange of personal and financial information and documentation via the App.
  • Easily communicate with your property lawyer via the App.
  • Track the progress of your transaction and key milestones via the App.
  • Understand what you are required to supply to your property lawyer to keep your transaction moving with the App’s To-Do List.
  • Easily review communication and documentation sent to you from within the App.
  • Remove the need to supply bank statements (for those with internet banking and consenting to ‘open banking’).

Of course, using the App doesn’t replace speaking with your lawyer and you can call them at any point to ask questions or get guidance.
