Frequently Asked Questions
What does the Customer Account show me?
Your Customer Account will show you a high level view of your sale and/or purchase along with an explanation of what is happening/will happen at each stage. You will also have access to any documents which are made available to be completed electronically. Completing information in this way will help to reduce the time taken to progress your case when measured against documents being returned by post. Any outstanding tasks which you are required to complete will be flagged up under either the sale or purchase file as appropriate.
How do I know what is happening with my transaction?
The case tracker will show you a high level view of your sale and/or purchase, and a more detailed explanation of the position of each milestone will be given below. By clicking on each milestone within the tracker, you can see a brief description of what to expect from that stage, what has happened or if overdue, what the cause may be.
