The Conveyancing Association Technical Protocol

Download Technical Protocol

In 2013 we worked together with representatives of panel management companies to develop the Protocol – a document which collates guidance from the Law Society, Legal Ombudsman, Council of Mortgage Lenders and case law to provide conveyancers with a single point of reference for best practice.

The Protocol is about ensuring firms take a ‘common-sense’ approach to the conveyancing process, agreeing certain service levels between our members in an effort to improve the service to their clients and the timescales of each stage of the process. The Protocol is thereby intended to deliver a robust and efficient conveyancing service through the co-operation of all parties involved.

There are many reasons why some conveyancing transactions take longer than others, but we are confident that many of the practical suggestions it is recommending to its members will reduce transaction times and facilitate better relationships within the conveyancing community to the benefit of all.
