April was a significant month for the conveyancing profession as we had the first response from the Government on its own Call for Evidence. The CA welcomed a lot of the measures announced, but perhaps we would have liked to see some further ‘mandation’ particularly in terms of the provision of upfront information.
Alongside this the CA also launched new versions of both its Technical and Cyberfraud & Fraud Protocols – another sign of our commitment to ensuring the process and firms’ fraud prevention measures are up to scratch on an ongoing basis. The new Protocols have been welcomed by the membership and we hope they are now being used by firms.
Our regular articles continue to be well-read and well-commented on – not everyone is in favour (as you might expect) of our measures but an industry dialogue and debate is crucial if we want to make the whole process better.
Next month we have a further MCM and AMM meeting and this will no doubt generate both news and the next steps in our workstreams.
