Representatives from the UK’s most respected conveyancing firms, innovative suppliers to the sector, technology experts and industry commentators gathered yesterday to discuss the hot topics concerning the sector.
Hosted by Chris Harris, Managing Director of Lawyer Checker and owner of the Practical Vision network, attendees included partners, directors and senior representatives from Law Firm Services, PM Law, Brethertons, Timms Law, MKP Conveyancing, Beaumont Legal, Third Fort, Future Climate Info, One Dome and The Move Exchange.
The key themes up for discussion included: air pollution and other environmental factors – where does the conveyancers responsibility for advising customers of the implications of findings stop?; whether referral fees should be banned; the latest in attempted fraud and in particular cyberattacks; the relationship between estate agents and solicitors; and price transparency – early indications of what this might mean for conveyancers.
