I’m writing this on the longest day of the year – the Summer Solstice –…
To say that March has been a month of two halves, would be something of an understatement. What started with a focus on our core workstream outputs, particularly around the provision of upfront information, reservation agreements and the potential use of Property Log Books, quickly moved into a much more focused response to the Coronavirus crisis and how the CA supports its member firms in this incredibly challenging time.
The second half of the month has been dominated by this, and no doubt will continue to, for the foreseeable future. As always, the CA has been quick to work with other conveyancing market stakeholders to deliver further guidance, working off the Government’s required actions and the health measures that need to be adhered to.
As mentioned, this is a very difficult period for firms and their clients, who – for no fault of their own – have been left to pick up the pieces, particularly in terms of moving house purchase transactions forward. We’ll continue to work with the media to inform them of the work the CA is doing in this area and to ensure that members have everything at their disposal in order to help them through this situation.
