Earth to Raymond

In his EGI News article entitled Arguments prove to be paper-thin, Raymond Perry argues that we ought to examine the claims that technological advances are generally accepted as being positive and inevitable. He believes that rather than eliminating paper, new technology greatly increases its use and the introduction of e-conveyancing will be no exception.

Initially a solicitor will have to have a manuscript signature to a binding authority in paper form before he can use his digital signature on behalf of the individual. The writer feels that paperless conveyancing will not speed up the conveyancing process per se since other factors such as assembling the chain of transactions are the real cause of inefficiency.
