A relatively new entrant into a tightly congested group of suppliers, Checkboard's FCA authorisation differentiator enables an impressive level of data insight during the onboarding process that helps to significantly de-risk transactions


What we like most about Checkboard:

  • FCA authorisation allows for Checkboard to provide detail such as instant mortgage insights and financial history.

  • The business works closely with customers and reacts quickly to requests.

  • Modular approach allows law firms to design their own checks.

  •  Ability to capture monies on account (and deposit payments up to £1m) as part of the process, streamlines the cashflow and allows work to begin more quickly.

Business structure:

Majority owned by Founder James Owusu and trading since 2019. Very much in the growth phase and with a strong offering.

Ease of use:

Very easy system to use and reports are very well laid out. The data insights flowing from the FCA authorisation are impressive.

Architecture & roadmap:

Fully cloud based solution with all data held in the UK. The team is impressively responsive to requests from the customer base and strongly moving the product forwards.


The Checkboard system has an Open API to allow integration with 3rd part case management systems and the in-house team is proactive in setting this up for users.


All implementations, onboarding and training is handled in-house by the Checkboard team. The customer support team is regularly referenced by customers as being friendly and efficient.

Value for money:

A straight forward and competitively priced pay as you go "per check" basis allows for transparent charging structures.

Things to consider: 

Still a relatively young company up against some established big guns but progressing well with around 100 firms already using the solution.
