How mortgage brokers can combat the challenges of disjointed communication during a property transaction

In an ideal world, all parties involved in property transactions, including mortgage brokers, conveyancers, surveyors, and lenders, would be able to communicate seamlessly.    

In this article, we explore one of the top four challenges faced by mortgage brokers; the barrier of disjointed communication and update chasing during a property transaction.   

Why is communication a challenge for mortgage brokers?  

As all mortgage brokers know, one of the main challenges in the property industry is disjointed communication. This challenge of communication between conveyancers, brokers, lenders, and surveyors is caused by a range of factors, including: 

  • use of old paper-based systems  
  • inconsistent processes,    
  • lack of computer system integration.  

The absence of a joined-up approach across the sector has resulted in parties having to write or phone for updates, causing delays. Unfortunately, when communication falters during a property sale or purchase, the result is unnecessary delays, client dissatisfaction, and even deals falling through.      

How can this challenge be addressed?
