Our News Coverage | November 2018

November was an important month in the progress towards reforming the leasehold system as the deadline passed for responding to the MHCLG’s consultation paper on ‘Implementing Leasehold Reform’. The CA issued its response and encouraged member firms to do similar, with the response covered in a range of trade media. Plus it was encouraging to see the Association’s response being cited and endorsed by a number of organisations such as the Leasehold Knowledge Partnership and the HomeOwners Alliance. MHCLG will now collate all responses and we anticipate 2019 will bring in the rules that the CA has been pushing for.

The CA’s work in a number of other areas has also received commendation particularly around ‘Property Log Books’ which appear to be favoured by the Government. We are also days away from the new price transparency rules for conveyancing firms being introduced – this was a subject debated at the recent Policy & Strategy Board, and the CA’s Beth Rudolf has been quoted on the subject in a recent article published by the tmgroup.

December brings with it the CA Annual Conference & Dinner, taking place at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, from which there is bound to be plenty of discussion points and a vision of how the future might look like for the sector and the home-buying process. Watch this space.
