Next week we have the 2024 CA Annual Conference and Charity Dinner taking place in…
March was a month in which angst about the time it is taking to complete house sales and purchases reached something of a crescendo. Data showing it is often taking the best part of five to six months for the average property sale to be completed were thrust front and centre and put attention back onto what is required to improve the process, particularly for consumers.
As you will know the CA is heavily involved in this workstream, working with the HBSG on various initiatives around the provision of upfront information, the technology required to deliver this and our media coverage throughout the month reflect this.
March ended with the launch of the third version of the BASPI as the momentum grows around the ongoing need for greater levels of upfront information, and the industry presents the solution to that requirement. The CA led the way in terms of media coverage of this new iteration of the form and we would recommend Beth Rudolf’s article in Today’s Conveyancer which busts some of the myths put forward by those who do not want change for the better.
