Hoowla Review LPL Case Study


Launched in August 2017, LPL are a division of established Manchester law firm Read Roper & Read.

With a strong commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and speeding up the conveyancing process, LPL offers a fresh approach to conveyancing.



With the focus on providing outstanding customer service by delivering an accessible conveyancing service, customer communication is a key factor for LPL.

Offering clients the ability to interact with the team at a time to suit them means the client is in control of their property transaction.

With this in mind LPL also wanted to offer clients the option to login to view the progress of their case online, request updates, fill in client questionnaires and sign and submit forms securely to improve the transaction time.



Hoowla and LPL worked closely to tailor a bespoke version of Hoowla’s case management software, built to LPL’s specifications. They also designed and built LPL’s website and installed the conveyancing quote calculator, fully branded to LPL.

A modern approach to conveyancing was the focus, with clients being able to interact with LPL at a time convenient to them, and view and request case updates.

LPL use Quill for their accounting, so a full integration between Quill and LPL’s case management software was a requirement.


Solutions Implemented:

– Tailored Case Management System

– Conveyancing Quote Calculator



The case tracking allows LPL’s clients to log in and view the progress of their case and request updates at any time.

The ability to fill in client questionnaires, digitally sign documents and submit forms securely means the transaction time is greatly reduced, eliminates the chances of lost mail and saves on the cost of posting information back and forth.

The average completion time for LPL is less that 4 weeks and 5 star reviews show clients value the ability to login to the system to see updates, estimated completion dates of each stage and add notes to their case.

Vanessa Newman Property Lawyers Hoowla Case Study


Vanessa Newman Property Lawyers are a new start based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

Vanessa believes that a modern conveyancing firm should offer clients a personal service combined with leading technology to provide the best possible experience and ensure that the transaction reaches completion as quickly as possible.



Though specialising in conveyancing, Vanessa was looking for a case management system that would enable her to handle all matters.

Vanessa was looking to work with a case management provider who offered her the same kind of customer care that she offers her clients.  As a new start price was also an important consideration.



Vanessa Newman Property Lawyers implemented Hoowla’s Conveyancing Quote Calculator and full Case Management System.

The Quote Calculator has been installed on Vanessa’s website and a dedicated login has also been provided to one of the agents she works with to make quoting simpler for them and enable them to easily pass work through.

Installing the Quote Calculator on Vanessa’s website allows clients to request an instant conveyancing quote. Dedicated logins for agents allows them to generate quotes for their clients and pass work through to Vanessa.

The case management system allows Vanessa to build her own workflows to suit requirements for different matters.

Hoowla’s integration with the Land Registry and Index Search Providers means she can request documents without having to leave Hoowla or double enter data and the AML integration means she can easily ID check clients.

Vanessa’s clients also love Hoowla as they can track their case online .

Clacton on Sea based Rhodda & Co LLP Solicitors have chosen to implement Hoowla’s case management software for their conveyancing department, to continue offering their clients the top class service the firm is known for.

A modern firm with a focus on offering clients a friendly, personal and professional service, Rhodda & Co specialise in wills and probate and conveyancing within the local area and beyond.

Rhodda & Co were using online conveyancing case management software previously but found that the lack of customer support, limitations within the system and difficulty to update documents meant the system was costing them valuable time.

Head of Conveyancing Emma Warren explains “We requested a demo and were immediately impressed. Adam approached the demo, and us, in a very individual way. He showed us the ways the system fits around us, not the way we could fit around the system. We wanted a system which we could tailor to our way of working, that we could easily alter at anytime and that had excellent customer support. It was evident from the demo that Hoowla ticked all our boxes and so our decision was easy thereafter.”

Hoowla is a fully cloud based software solution, providing a modern approach to legal software. Hoowla’s case management software allows legal professionals to manage their case loads efficiently and automatically generate legal documents, submitting information to third parties such as HMRC and the Land Registry.

Updates are frequent, and the Hoowla team works with firms to provide a software solution specific to them.

Hoowla managing director Adam Curtis says “Hoowla is a perfect solution for progressive firms like Rhodda & Co who embrace advancements in technology and utilise them to deliver the best possible service to their clients. We are delighted that they have chosen Hoowla for their case management and conveyancing quoting system.”

Although Rhodda & Co have only been using Hoowla for a short time they are already seeing massive benefits, as Emma explains “Since implementing Hoowla’s case management system the conveyancing team are able to produce documents much quicker, allowing them to do more work in the day. We can alter templates, workflows, documents, reports and letters easily without needing help from the Hoowla team, while knowing they are only a phone call away if needed.

The customer service is second to none; all of Hoowla are there to assist whenever needed but in honesty the system is so simple most issues can be worked out without recourse to Hoowla staff. It’s a simple, adaptable yet professional system with outstanding customer service and I would recommend Hoowla to anyone.”
