Our News Coverage | August 2018

August is traditionally a month in which many in our industry embark on their holidays and when the ‘silly season’ is in full effect for the mainstream press. The former might well have been true of 2018 but at the CA we like to think that the year doesn’t necessarily stop when it comes to pushing our agenda and for highlighting improvements in the sector.

Our recent lender survey gained significant coverage with a full feature in the lender-focused Mortgage Finance Gazette, and we thank all those conveyancers who completed it. This type of response is crucial if we are to continue cutting down on post-valuation queries and improving communication between lenders and coneyancers.

Our new Non-Executive Chair, Paul Smee, is already making a splash in the legal and financial trade press taking over from Eddie Goldsmith, and setting out the CA’s agenda for the rest of the year. The first meeting of the new Policy & Strategy Board takes place in September and will put some considerable meat on the bone regarding what the CA will be looking to achieve, and with a Budget not so far away, Paul pressed the case for Government action on stamp duty in his regular article for Estate Agent Today.

The next few months are traditionally very busy for the conveyancing sector and the CA will also have a full agenda of meetings and actions, culminating in December’s Annual Conference & Dinner. Full details of all coverage in August can be found below:
