Can conveyancers and agents work together better?

The ESTAs returns in October with the relationship between estate agents and conveyancers under the microscope.

The unprecedented activity in the property market over the last 18 months has highlighted the relationship between agents and conveyancers; the average time for a sale to complete is longer than it has ever been and abortive transaction numbers are rising.

This year’s ESTAS Forum sponsored by Coadjute, will examine the relationship between conveyancers and agents and consider how to improve the experience for all those involved in the home moving process.

The event, which is supported by Today’s Conveyancer, will be held in London next month. The format will see a series of panel discussions looking at what the problems are and exploring some of the solutions that are already being used by some agencies and conveyancers. The theme of the forum is ‘working together better’.

Readers are encouraged to come along and join the debate, share experiences and help find some solutions that will improve the home buying and selling process for everyone.

Simon Brown Founder of The ESTAS said

“I talk to agents and conveyancers every day and unfortunately there is sometimes a blame game developing which just isn’t healthy or helping the end client. We wanted to create an event that gets under the skin of what the issues really are and see if we can find some practical ways to make the process easier and less stressful for all parties that have a vested interest to get deals done.”

“If you are in any way involved in the home buying and selling process, attending this event is a must, as the famous saying goes ‘If you’re not part of the solution you’re part of the problem.’”

Dan Salmons CEO at Headline Partner Coadjute added

“A successful property transaction depends on a whole ecosystem of different professions working seamlessly together.  Technology clearly has a major part to play in this, but I think it’s fair to say that to date the property market has not embraced it to the extent we’ve seen in other industries.   The ESTAS Forum is a great chance to discuss what the barriers and opportunities are, and what an industry-wide network like Coadjute can do to make life easier for estate Agents and conveyancers”.

The forum takes place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Friday 22nd October prior to The ESTAS Customer Service Awards that same afternoon.  The event will be hosted by Rob Hailstone CEO of Bold Legal Group along with Sarah Edmundson, CEO at Agency All Stars and Agents Together and Iain McKenzie CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals.
