Our News Coverage | April 2021

With the initial stamp duty holiday now passed, the conveyancing sector has moved to looking at two future deadlines, namely the end of June, followed by the end of September. Understandably, the focus has shifted onto the ongoing level of work to hit those deadlines, but also looking at the future in terms of how […]


Our News Coverage | February 2021

February was another month dominated by calls for the stamp duty holiday to be extended/tapered or smoothed. At the time of writing, the entire industry is waiting for an announcement to be made in the Budget on the 3rd of March – the CA worked with the BBC in February to draw attention to what […]


Our News Coverage | January 2021

January was a month in which one issue tended to dominate – the stamp duty holiday deadline and the growing industry calls for a tapering and possible extension. Many CA firms are dealing with workloads far in advance of normal, and there has been a variety of industry statistics focusing on the number of potential […]


Our News Coverage | December 2020

December always brings with it a chance to reflect on the year that has passed and what is to come in 2021. What we do know is that the first quarter of 2021 is likely to be incredibly busy for the conveyancing profession as they seek to ensure property transactions complete before the end of […]


Our News Coverage | October 2020

October has been a month dominated by one topic – the stamp duty holiday and the combined efforts of the housing industry to draw attention to next year’s deadline and to urge the Government to reconsider whether an extension or a taper wouldn’t be in the best interests of all. The CA has been working […]

Progress has been made in a number of key areas during July, notably the Law Commission’s changes to leasehold and support for commonhold, but also the Land Registry’s acceptance of Qualified Electronic Signatures in conveyancing and it’s release of authoritative data on Registered Leases and Restrictive Covenants data sets for England and Wales. All of […]


Our News Coverage | June 2020

June saw the first full month of the housing market being reopened – in England at least – and while there has been some progress in other countries, one of the major frustrations voiced by the CA has been the relative slowness of that reopening, particularly in Wales. To that end, the CA wrote to […]


Our News Coverage | May 2020

May was a month of progress, at least in England where the easing of lockdown allowed the housing market to reopen. This, of course, came with its own challenges and thus our PR focus during the month was very much on the Government support for the housing market in general and conveyancing firms specifically. Prior […]


Our News Coverage | April 2020

There’s no doubt it’s been an incredibly challenging time for the entire conveyancing market and the CA’s recent webinar highlighted exactly what firms are working with, through and (in some cases) against.
