I’m writing this on the longest day of the year – the Summer Solstice –…
Industry comes together to discuss way forward
The Conveyancing Association (CA) will this week host its first All-Members Meeting of 2015 – where industry leaders will come together to discuss how the industry can work more closely together in order to improve the home buying and selling experience for all involved.
The roundtable event, which will take place in London on Thursday 12 March, will be the latest initiative in the CA’s campaign to make housing transactions a positive experience by improving interactions between the parties involved and ironing out the issues which cause the most delay and concern.
It follows the launch of the CA’s Best Practice Guide in December, which was designed to help improve communication between conveyancers and estate agents – the event will also see the publication of the results of the CA’s latest survey of conveyancers and estate agents, which aimed to identify the common problems each encounter during a home purchase or sale.
Amongst those attending the event are leading industry figures – including, Property Ombudsman Chris Hamer, Michael Garson of the Law Society and Jane Finch of the Moving Association.
The ultimate objective of the campaign is to work towards providing customers with a better service when it comes to buying or selling a property.
