    We are working as hard as possible to ensure we have someone in the office but due to staff shortages and the government lockdown we cannot guarantee we will be open for walk-in visitors during this period. We also ask that documents be emailed rather than posted wherever possible to avoid delays in receipt.

  • New Office Ready

    Posted 10 months ago

    We are very excited as our new office is nearly ready. Have you ever seen excited lawyers? We're really looking forward to crawling into our little lawyer warrens at the new location. Just take a look at the snazzy photos below.

    The air conditioning system in our current office involves opening a window and sticking our heads out. Admin sometimes wave their hands to help the air currents circulate across the room. The new office with integrated air conditioning will be a great improvement. 

    It also has desks that are not second hand! At our current office we have one desk which is called the "extra leg room desk" because of all the bits missing. We're really looking forward to have actual proper desks to sit at.

    Our receptionist is also looking forward to his new desk. He keeps asking if it is gold-plated. While it doesn't have any gold it does have lights and fibre glass. That's an upgrade on, well, not currently having one at all. We might even give him a chair to sit down.

    The signage is going up on the front and we look forward to moving in - hopefully in August, before we all melt!

  • New Software System

    Posted 11 months ago

    After two years the wait is finally over! Our expert developers have finished creating a new software system for use by Notary Express. The new system was officially ready for use on the 1st of July 2019 and is already a huge success within Notary Express. Conveyancer Louise Pugh says that the system “makes the conveyancing process a lot more streamlined and will make the company better at being paperless”.

    The aim of the system is to dramatically improve and re-organise the way data is stored and recorded within Notary Express. The innovative user interface allows users to add all the information on clients and companies as efficiently as possible, share information within the firm and for internal users to access the information quickly and efficiently. Staff members can add activity notes and write down what is pending on cases, which will help us to give quick and detailed updates on cases to clients and companies. Justin Terrett in sales says, “it’s a lot easier to set up new files and customers on the system quicker”.

    The new system has a handy search tool, where you can input a client name or property address and it will bring up all information for that name or address for every conveyancer, making it easier to find the correct case by name or address alone. This is a monumental improvement on the old system, where information for each staff member was stored on separate databases, and those databases were searched one by one until the correct information was found. Not only is the new system efficient and works astoundingly well, it’s also aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate.

    This superb and unique system will improve the way that Notary Express can update clients and companies, add fees and disbursements, allocate funds, search, and add information for all cases, and facilitate the continued development of the company.

  • Notary Express new office midway through renovation

    Posted 11 months ago

    We are midway through the renovation of our new office building. Most of the background work has been done. The electrics have been installed (though we still have no electricity yet!), the plumbing and air conditioning routed, the suspended ceiling grid and walls put up, windows installed, and we have had the insides painted. The flooring is going in and furniture being ordered. It's been a long project and we're pleased to be making progress!
