We reported earlier in the month that the Conveyancing Association (CA) had worked together with Connells, Move with Us, Countrywide and LSL Property Services, to develop the Conveyancing Protocol.
The Protocol is now available to download, please click here to view.
The protocol was launched on the 5th December at the Conveyancing Association’s Christmas Dinner and is designed to collate guidance from the Law Society, the Council for Licensed Conveyancers, the Legal Ombudsman, the Council of Mortgage Lenders and case law — providing licensed conveyancers and solicitors with a single point of reference for best practice.
The Conveyancing Association believes the Protocol could shorten the length of time of a house transaction by up to five working days — and that it will ultimately enable licensed conveyancers and solicitors to provide their customers with a better service.
As conveyancers what do you think of the protocol? Do you think it is a useful tool for the profession?
