I’m writing this on the longest day of the year – the Summer Solstice –…
The Conveyancing Association (CA), the leading trade body for the conveyancing industry, has today (17th January 2017) announced Legal Eye as its latest Affiliate members.
Legal Eye, a subsidiary of ULS technology, providing tailored compliance and risk solutions for solicitors and licensed conveyancers, has worked with the CA for a number of years, undertaking the desktop compliance reviews required of prospective member firms of the Association.
As Affiliate members, Legal Eye is specifically appointed by the CA and the new partnership will seek to develop bespoke, discounted legal consultancy packages for member firms in 2017.
Legal Eye holding company, ULS technology, is a leading conveyancing panel manager that acts on behalf of banks, building societies and intermediaries. ULS technology manage lender’s general panels of conveyancers as well as providing online B2B and B2C conveyancing comparison platforms for the UK conveyancing and financial intermediary markets. Platforms include eConveyancer, white label sites for business partners, HomeOwners Alliance and MoneySuperMarket, plus other technology solutions for the legal services and housing sector including Estate Agency Performance.
Legal Eye, ULS technology and its consumer brand, HomeOwners Alliance, join other CA Affiliate members who are active in a number of fields including search provision, IT services, professional indemnity insurance/cyber crime insurance, bespoke conveyancing indemnity policy provision and enhanced risk management tools, amongst others.
Affiliate members are able to attend select CA Management Committee (MCM) and All Member Meetings (AMM). Each Affiliate member has the opportunity to present and their details are prominently advertised on the CA website, its newsletters and on all relevant CA publications.
All Affiliate members will also attend, and be promoted, at the CA Annual Conference& Dinner.
Lloyd Davies, Operations Director at the Conveyancing Association, commented:
“As the year begins, we are looking forward to an incredibly busy 12 months ahead as we set out our aims and priorities, we broaden the scope of our membership, and we continue to work with like-minded businesses such as Legal Eye, who we are delighted to announce as new Affiliate members. The CA’s relationship with Legal Eye goes back some years and we have worked closely together, particularly in terms of our procedures for bringing new member firms into the fold. Legal Eye’s expertise in relation to compliance is also very important for the CA as it plays an active role in ensuring our best practice guidelines are fully SRA- and CLC-compliant. We limit the number of Affiliate members, and work closely with them to develop real benefits for our member firms – we’ll certainly be doing this with Legal Eye and look forward to a productive 2017 with the team there.”
Paul Saunders, Managing Director at Legal Eye, said:
“We already have a strong relationship with the CA but our appointment as Affiliate members enables us to take this to a new level. 2016 was clearly a landmark year for the Association as it set out its agenda, launched its White Paper, and brought together all stakeholders to ensure the conveyancing sector can be all that it should be. Everyone at Legal Eye has been impressed with the CA’s drive and ambition, and by working closely together in 2017 we believe we can help member firms successfully tackle some of the key issues that they face, particularly in terms of compliance and risk solutions.
We are set up to enable conveyancing firms to meet their goals and ambitions in this area, and believe this relationship with the CA will go a long way to helping them achieve this. It promises to be a ground-breaking year for all concerned, and we’re very happy to be involved.”
