I’m writing this on the longest day of the year – the Summer Solstice –…
Our media focus tends to be mostly concentrated on the legal/conveyancing trade press, however as the CA becomes more widely known as the voice of the serious conveyancer, we are increasingly asked for our views by the national newspapers.
June was certainly a month when this was the case and, as you’ll see below, the CA secured coverage in the FT, Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph. As membership grows and the CA becomes more influential I suspect that we will be increasingly asked for our views and this shows how far the trade body has come in recent times.
The focus on our key strategic plan remains and our regular articles are often used to detail ongoing successes and how we are moving stakeholders towards an improved home-buying process. Eddie Goldsmith’s article in Estate Agent Today in particular looks at how the industry is ‘nudging’ the policy makers towards our end goals, but also how the Government’s own Behavioural Insight ‘Nudge Unit’ will be looking at how it can engage consumers with reservation agreements.
Full details of all coverage in June can be found below:
