In E-conveyancing will not fly of August last year, Bob Browning predicted that e-conveyancing would not fly. Now that the British government is getting it off the ground he has changed his prediction - it will crash and burn. His main thesis is that digital signatures are too difficult and ultimately too insecure to administer properly.
By having the conveyancer sign everything on behalf of a participant in a property transaction, one will end up with a transaction which is:
- more expensive
- riskier and
- hard for customers to accept.
