Search Acumen comments on Conveyancing Standards Bill
Andy Sommerville, Director of Search Acumen, comments:
“The proposed Conveyancing Standards Bill has the right message when it comes to ensuring consumer protection for people making possibly the single most important investment of their lives. Whilst property lawyers play a significant role, the responsibility should be shared with developers and local planning authority.
“There is a huge opportunity here for more conveyancers to use the latest available data and technology to help with upfront risk assessments. This in turn provides lawyers with the ability to act on behalf of their clients earlier and progress transactions safely and securely.”
