Our News Coverage | June 2021

It doesn’t need to be said that June was a month where the media has tended to focus on one specific area – the countdown to the stamp duty holiday, how conveyancing firms were coping, what might happen if transactions did not complete before the date, and a whole host of other responses required around specific case studies, the fees charged by firms, and the level of business they have been willing or unwilling to take on.

You’ll see from our coverage below that a significant amount of time has been spent dealing with national newspaper journalists and the freelancers that work for them on these type of reaction responses.

We’ve also continued to push the overarching message around the improvements required in the home buying and selling process, and to also provide views on what we believe should be happening after the stamp duty holidays are over, if not before.
