The SLC’s new Chairman elected

The Society of Licensed Conveyancers (The SLC) welcomed Valerie (Val) Holmes as its new Chairman on 3rd October. Val has been an active SLC Board Member since 2013 and has over 30 years’ experience in conveyancing working for large and small companies. Valerie founded Valerie Holmes Property Lawyer in 2007.

Val said: “I’m delighted to have been appointed as the new SLC Chairman and relish the opportunity to continue the great work of Simon Law and the Board along with Mike Ockenden and his Secretariat team. I look forward to working with the Society’s Board and its Members to provide constructive responses to Government consultations, and to working together with the CLC and other legal bodies to make the conveyancing process easier for Conveyancers, which will ultimately also benefit the general public”.

Val has taken over from outgoing Chairman Simon Law who has chaired the Society since 2012. Simon said: “After 6 years as Chairman, the time has come for me to step aside, and I am delighted to hand over the reins to Val. I wish to thank all the board members, Mike and the Secretariat for all their hard work during those years. The last 6 years have seen a number of important changes within the conveyancing profession and I believe that we have been able to position the SLC as a major influencer in those changes. I am sure that Val will continue this work and be a fantastic Chairman.”

The Society would like to Congratulate Val and thank Simon Law for his work and commitment in building and growing the Society to what it is today. Without Simon’s engagement and contribution the Society would not be in the strong position it is now.

Society of Licensed Conveyancers

The Society of Licensed Conveyancers (SLC) is the professional body that represents the Licensed Conveyancer profession. It exists to serve the interests of its members working constructively with the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) as well as other stakeholders such as Government Departments, industry representative bodies, consumer organisations and the media; national, local and trade.

The Society has existed from the time the Licensed Conveyancer profession was established by Act of Parliament in the 1980s and has delivered many important and valuable services to members over the years.

The SLC is focused on six key objectives:

1. Helping members to face the future with confidence

2. Providing a viable proposition for members to act on behalf of mortgage lenders as part of their panels (SLC Quality Assured is the SLC’s new solution, which is currently in the final stages of development)

3. Providing information and advice on the opportunities that the new Alternative Business Structures (ABS) provide

4. Helping members to take advantage of technology to compete for the future

5. Providing additional products and services to help members differentiate themselves to their clients and enhance their income streams in the process

6. Give members an enhanced and inclusive professional identity
