This is excellent news and I would hope has the potential to greatly speed up the conveyancing process.
Admittedly the process in Scotland is MUCH better than here in England (and I wish we would replicate it as it would protect sellers from unscrupulous purchasers), but if they can get it working then it could make a positive impact in England.

My concern would be self-interested solicitors de-railing it in order to justify slow processing of documentation and larger fees in order to continue with the current, more labour-intensive process.

Well done to the Law Society of Scotland. I hope they can get it up and running quickly.
