Leading risk and compliance consultancy Legal Eye, has been assisting firms across England and Wales…
The Conveyancing Association (CA) – the leading trade body for the conveyancing industry – has urged all conveyancers and property market stakeholders to attend the Upfront Information Roadshow, either in person or online, to help the industry get to grips with the topic and work together to utilise material information in order to deliver a more efficient sales process.
The Home Buying & Selling Group (HBSG) Upfront Information Roadshow – being held as part of National Conveyancing Week – is taking place on 10am 21st March at 8 Northumberland Avenue, Trafalgar Square in London.
Chaired by Rob Hailstone of Bold Legal Group (BLG), the event is designed to explain which prescribed documents would need to be reviewed to identify the anticipated Material Information, which must be provided on advertising/marketing a property for sale, and to debate how local property networks can work together to do this efficiently.
The event will also include a presentation by the CA’s Director of Delivery, Beth Rudolf, who will look at why Upfront Information provision is such a big issue for the property market, what’s in it for all stakeholders, what is covered under Upfront Information, the busting of certain myths, the importance of technology in delivering this, and who can help firms implement it.
This will then be followed by an expert panel debate which will include Beth, Ana Bajri (Head of Sustainability at Countrywide Surveying Services), Glynis Frew (Franchise Training & Development Director at The Property Franchise Group), Jon Horton (Product Director at tmgroup) and Robert Sinclair (Chief Executive of the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries).
Rob Hailstone will then round-up the event followed by a networking session including refreshments.
The event is open to all stakeholders including conveyancers, estate agents, mortgage advisers, lenders, surveyors, valuers and all those interested.

Beth Rudolf, Director of Delivery at The Conveyancing Association, said:
“The provision of Upfront Information, and what constitutes the material information the industry should be providing to potential customers at the start of their buying journey, is a crucial part of our overall campaign to improve the home buying and selling process.
“Put together in conjunction with BLG, HBSG, and its Upfront Information Working Group – and taking place within National Conveyancing Week – we want as many property market stakeholders to attend in order to help them understand the issue, the benefits, and how it could help create a huge amount of improvement right across the property sales piece.
“This event is open to all, right across the country, and even if you can’t attend in person, please do join the live stream in order that we can help identify the material information that is to be advertised upfront, and so all stakeholders know where they can get hold of this in order to provide the right advice for a potential buyer.
“It is through industry collaboration and by getting as many firms across all sectors working together, that we will be able to utilise Upfront Information to its fullest capacity, and we can cut the number of fall throughs each year, get rid of the wasted resource and cost, and help turn our business pipelines over that much quicker to aid greater profitability.
“Please attend next week and find out what is happening, what happens next and how you can get involved in this important campaign.”
