Rajah & Tann partners Showsuite to digitise legal documentation for sales of properties
Rajah & Tann Singapore (R&T) has signed a contract with Singapore-based property-tech company, Showsuite, to digitise the voluminous amount of legal documentation that comes with real estate transactions.
Under the agreement, Showsuite’s digital platform will streamline and automate back-end work processes and digitize legal documentation associated with the sales of new homes by property developer clients.
Showsuite is a pioneer in the field of digitisation of transactions of new homes for property developers connecting them with their property agents, lawyers and architects. Over S$4 billion worth of new homes in Singapore have been transacted on Showsuite’s digital booking platform since its launch in 2018. Its clients include GuocoLand, Hong Leong, CEL Development, Heeton Holdings & TID Development, amongst others.
Mr Norman Ho, Senior Partner, Corporate Real Estate at Rajah & Tann said: “Our collaboration with Showsuite will allow us to further harness the power of legal technology at Rajah & Tann and help us to streamline the work processes of our development projects into a more structured workflow. Not only will this bring about greater efficiency in delivering legal services to the developers, but it also cements our commitment to a sustainability focused legal practice.”
Mr Karamjit Singh, Chief Executive Officer of Showsuite said, “As we began to digitize transactions for property developers with our solutions, it has become very apparent to us of the importance of having the whole eco-system on board in order to harness technology’s full potential. We have since enhanced our platform that allows property agents to transact efficiently, in real-time, paperless-ly and remotely, which is vital in a post-Covid world. The agreement now with Rajah & Tann marks the start of a new milestone for Showsuite as we extend our technological offerings to law firms involved in the new home sales network.”
