Our latest Continual Professional Development (CPD) event at the STEAM Museum was just the ticket – time to get on board?

Did you know that all CPD courses run by Thames Water Property Searches are designed to help ensure you’re in line with most recent Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) guidelines?

There is no need to count CPD hours since new guidelines were issued last November. Instead, conveyancers are required to identify and address any learning and development needs, to make sure knowledge and skills are up to date and that they are competent to practice.

That’s why it was full steam ahead for attendees, who came to our latest commercial conveyancing CPD event, held at the iconic STEAM Museum in Swindon in June.

During the day-long conference, delegates got the lowdown on the latest industry news from experts such as Land Data CEO Jan Boothroyd, who gave an ‘informative’ talk on updates to various Local Authority searches, as well as their commercial applications.

Another highlight was Paul Clark, consultant at Cripps LLP, who delivered an energetic commercial property workshop, covering issues such as lease drafting – especially relevant after the recent landmark case involving Marks & Spencer – the registration gap, as well as exploring a variety of potentially problematic SDLT situations.

There were also talks from Alex Barr of Third Bounce on how conveyancers can win more clients and TWPS’s own account manager Jason Harper, who delved into the world of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS).

To top the day off, delegates were given a history lesson from one of the STEAM Museum’s volunteers.

Michelle Challis from Gardner Leader said: “Solicitors from our conveyancing team regularly attend Thames Water CPD events and the recent commercial property event held at the Steam Museum in Swindon was excellent.  The speakers were all very knowledgeable and the event, as usual, was well planned, informative and engaging.”
