In our first podcast with ntitle, our editor Emma Waddingham explores the company’s journey and benefits for the conveyancers it supports, from driving pace into the title investigation process, time and resource savings to supporting law firms’ wellbeing commitments, and enhancing the training and development of practitioners.

This episode is ideal for residential conveyancers as we speak to the founders of Welsh-born ntitle – the multi-award winning title investigation specialists.

Nicola Davies and Nicola Ashley launched ntitle in 2020, to simplify the title investigation process, to support conveyancers and empower them to do more for their clients, without the added strain of time-consuming title investigation work – often undertaken on evenings and weekends. Our Editor, Emma Waddingham, is joined by the founders to discuss what adds value to the work of conveyancing teams – from practitioner wellbeing to client care – and what’s next for ntitle, the only UK company to offer a specialist, legal process outsource service in title investigation.
