Key Dates For Your Diary This Autumn
Now that the summer has drawn to a close, and the autumn is slowly drawing in, it’s time to take a look at what Bold Legal have in store over the next few months.
First up, is Bold Legal LIVE!, the group’s first annual conference which is then followed by the prestigious ESTAS Conveyancer Awards on 18th October.
The event which is sponsored by LEAP, the leading practice management software provider, will use the ESTAS awards stage set creating a TV studio atmosphere, giving delegates an informative, educational and motivational experience. The audience will consist of 200+ law firm owners and key decision makers in the conveyancing sector. Both events will be held in the stunning ballroom at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London.
Rob Hailstone CEO of Bold Legal Group said:
“There is no doubt in my mind that the conveyancing process will evolve and change throughout 2020 and beyond. Busy property lawyers not only need to know what is going on but need to have a say in what is going on because any changes made are likely to affect their livelihoods. The conference will give them the opportunity to listen to and quiz those that will be formulating, implementing and making those changes.”
Topics and issues that will be focused on will include:
- The progress of the possible introduction of Reservation Agreements
- Bringing the sale/conveyancing process forward and Property Log Books (not HIPs!)
- The relevance and success of HMLR publishing its requisition data
- The new Code for Completion – Six months on!
- The success of introducing more referral fee transparency (via estate agents) and whether or not a full referral fee ban is likely”
Hailstone is arguably one of the best-known figures in the residential conveyancing sector with over 40 years’ experience in the industry and sits on a range of advisory panels, including those current bodies created by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to develop plans to improve the home buying and selling process.
John Espley, CEO at LEAP, said:
“I am thrilled that LEAP has been chosen to headline sponsor the inaugural Bold Legal LIVE! We share an ethos of promoting excellence in conveyancing and for many years we have developed highly innovative practice management software. With the positive impact our LEAP Best Practice Standard is having on the profession, we continue to provide real support to property lawyers, helping them to deliver a highly effective, professional and affordable service for their clients. We are looking forward to what promises to be a very informative and valuable day for those who attend.”
The conference will be followed by the most prestigious awards in the conveyancing sector The ESTAS sponsored by SearchFlow. The awards will be hosted by ESTAS brand ambassador and the nation’s favourite property expert Phil Spencer who will announce the winners in front of 400+ of the UK’s foremost property lawyers.
Simon Brown, Founder of The ESTAS Group said:
“We are absolutely delighted to be hosting a conference with the BLG team. This is a natural extension of the awards which our clients have been asking for. Rob’s experience and knowledge of the sector together with our expertise in live events means this will be a day and evening not to be missed.” Brown added “Space will be limited to both events so it’s important firms book their places as quickly as possible”.
