The CA tends to focus on a number of key messages in the media, all coming from the work streams that the Association is involved in, many of which are focused on ensuring a far better home-moving process for all stakeholders.
May was no different in that we used our regular articles and many of the comment/article requests to focus on these areas, namely improving lender communication and cutting down on post-valuation queries, working towards a far better leasehold process with a potential move to Commonhold, and helping firms (and their clients) combat potential fraud.
The future of conveyancing, and how firms might need to adapt, is an incredibly important topic and one that we’ll be discussing at our Policy & Strategy Board, Legal Member and All-Member meetings which will take place on the 27th June in London. We look forward to seeing you all there.
