b) buyers and sellers to manage property transactions easily from one platform, receive documents from conveyancing practitioners, provide conveyancing practitioners with documents and financial information, sign documents electronically, store documents for multiple property transactions in one easily-retrievable location, and exercise the option of using concierge services before, during and after a change of residence.
