Share your views on digital property information

The Digital Property Market Steering Group (DPMSG) is asking property practitioners to take part in a short survey on the value of creating a new digital property information protocol.

The aim of the digital property information protocol would be to help to improve the home moving, buying and selling process by encouraging uptake of digital processes and helping action upfront information.

The protocol would set out the roles and responsibilities of stakeholders in the adoption of digital property information and digital solutions across all sectors.

It would be an online and interactive document.

The DPMSG has drafted an example of what a future protocol could look like, which you can access using the survey link.

It currently focuses mainly on conveyancers, but the intention is that it would ultimately cover all sectors.

If you don't think a protocol is required, the DPMSG would like your ideas on what would encourage further uptake of digital processes.

How to take part

The survey should take around five to eight minutes to complete.

The survey closes at midnight on Monday 1 April.

Unless you choose to include your contact details, the survey is anonymous and your responses will not identify you or your firm.

The research is being carried out in line with the Market Research Society Code of Conduct.

About the DPMSG

We are a founding member of the DPMSG, a coalition of government and industry partners that launched in 2023.

It aims to help the property market work better by accelerating the adoption of digital technology through collaboration and innovation across the sector.

In January, the DPMSG launched a roadmap outlining priorities for the coming months. This survey is the first step of the process.

The Law Society is committed to improving the home-buying experience for consumers and others involved in the conveyancing process.

We recognise that the combined efforts of the whole sector – regulators, professional and trade bodies, and government – are needed to achieve this.

The DPMSG provides a forum for collaboration and achieving change, while enabling individual members to progress their own work in a coordinated way.
