PSG , one of the market leading providers of property searches and reports to the Legal and conveyancing profession opened the first of the current series of Networking events for The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme members in London last Thursday.
The main topic for debate was once again Lender Panels and the recent changes to the HSBC panel with members expressing concern of the impact of these, not only on their own businesses but on the consumer’s right to choose.
HSBC’s rules relating to separate representation are creating an unlevel and many believe anticompetitive environment.
Des Hudson, Chief Executive of The Law Society especially thanked PSG for sponsoring these events in such challenging economic times, and continues to add his voice and the weight of The Law Society to the campaign to get HSBC to change it’s policies.
This series of five CQS Networking events is a free membership benefit for accredited members of the CQS scheme. They will provide an opportunity for the members to hear expert speakers discussing topical conveyancing related issues. In turn each event will be followed by a post event networking session where members can share their experiences of the accreditation and network.
The remainder of the events will be held on:
1) 14th March Manchester
2) 15th March Nottingham
3) 22nd March Bristol
Andrea Glover, Managing Director of PSG, said “PSG was born out of the desire of Conveyancing Solicitors to provide a higher quality service for their clients. We support the Law Society’s stance on HSBC and the concerns generally over lender panels. We are delighted our sponsorship of these events is so valued by the Law Society. PSG regularly sponsors national and local Law Society events across the country for the benefit of our clients.”
