Our News Coverage | December 2018

December is always a big month in the Conveyancing Association calendar as our Annual Conference & Dinner takes place – this time it was held in the Etihad Stadium in Manchester.

The Conference focused on the digital future for the conveyancing sector and, importantly, how conveyancing firms should be shaping their own future by embracing the technological advantages that are available to them.

The CA itself updated members and stakeholders on its work, particularly within the Home Buying & Selling Group which is working with the Government to engineer updated processes for home buying. Plus we heard from Matt Prior of the MHCLG and we anticipate that 2019 will be the year when a number of measures will be announced which the Government believes will meet its aim of simplifying the process, providing greater security and transparency, and cutting back on the number of failed transactions.

From a media point of view, December was a significant month in terms of growing support for CA aims such as the introduction of both property log books and utilising commonhold as a replacement for leasehold. It is very gratifying to see growing industry and political support for these measures. Our very own Beth Rudolf appeared before the MHCLG Select Committee and this again shows the growing influence of the CA in political circles.

2019 will be a big year for our sector, and the Association, and we will continue to spread our key messages amongst the media and all stakeholders.
