Conveyancing Association seeks industry views on conveyancing process
The Conveyancing Association (CA) – the leading trade body for the conveyancing industry – has today launched a new survey of all conveyancing firms asking them to share details of the conveyancing process they follow and their views on a number of topics.
Having garnered the views of its membership, the CA is now broadening the survey to all conveyancing firms asking for information on what property information they use and will accept, potential barriers to using alternatives to the TA6, use of HM Land Registry Safe Harbour Standards, use of chain-view technology, and digital access to Transfers and Mortgage Deeds.
The survey results will be used to support the CA’s work, specifically in the area of digital conveyancing and other workstreams such as the provision of material information within the process.
The CA is also inviting feedback from all conveyancing firms, regardless of membership, on what they would like to the trade body to campaign for in order to make conveyancer’s lives easier now and to help them prepare for the future.
Beth Rudolf, Director of Delivery at The Conveyancing Association, said: “We’re acutely aware there is a lot coming down the tracks for conveyancing firms to get their heads around and we want to ensure that we are pre-empting those changes, and helping make the process as smooth as possible for practitioners. We’ve already garnered the views of many CA member firms but these are issues that impact the entire industry, not just our members, and it’s therefore important to have a broad view of the current processes followed and the support for specific changes. We’d also like to understand what areas conveyancers want us to prioritise as the industry’s trade body, and we hope therefore that all firms will be able to take the time to fill in this short five-minute survey.”
