Our News Coverage | October 2017

This month saw the much anticipated launch of DCLG’s Call for Evidence on improving the home buying and selling process. Political events had seemingly delayed its publication but our Director of Delivery, Beth Rudolf, had met a number of times with the team behind the Call for Evidence and there are a large number of aims and ambitions within the document that chime with what the CA is trying to achieve and the methods by which we intend to achieve them.

Following the publication, we issued an initial press response to it and we will be conversing with members in order to collate our official response. This was widely covered by the various publications and Beth was very much in demand throughout the month. The Call for Evidence closes in December but we do have the opportunity to discuss this at our Annual Conference before producing our full response.

During the rest of the month we made a number of political points, following conference season, plus speculated on what next month’s Budget might bring for both the housing market and the conveyancing industry. As always, there are continued calls for changes to stamp duty and this looks likely to be a hot topic throughout November.
