‘Excellent – as always’: the verdict’s in on our latest CPD event

‘Excellent – as always’: the verdict’s in on our latest CPD event

Commercial conveyancing was the theme of the day-long conference, which took place at Chelsea Old Town Hall on Thursday 20 April. A total of 64 delegates came to hear the four speakers talk about a wide variety of pertinent topics from negotiating break option terms for tenants to changes in drainage legislation.

As always, the event was very well received with lots of positive feedback. “An excellent conference, as always!” said one delegate. “A very useful event – thank you,” said another.

The morning consisted of three sessions. The first – led by Land Data CEO Jan Boothroyd – focused on updates to various local authority searches as well as their commercial applications.

The second was delivered by Philip Hill, Senior Account Manager at Landmark and Sally Redman, Consultancy Team Leader at Argyll Environmental. They gave a talk on the importance of selecting the right report for the right transaction while giving the audience tips on how to simplify their search packs by using RiskView Commercial, a new product that includes four searches in one.

Finally, our very own Jason Harper delved into the world of SuDS and discussed changes in drainage legislation, after which delegates had the opportunity to do lots of networking.

Then, to finish off the day, Mark Shelton from CPM Law Training led a session on negotiating break options (often a minefield for tenants) and applying for landlord’s consent under commercial leases.

As a national service provider with more than ten years’ knowledge and experience within the legal profession and property searches market, we go the extra mile to ensure our clients have all the information that helps make their businesses a success. As such, we run regular CPD events on a variety of subjects throughout the year – both on-site and in major cities and towns throughout the UK.

Our speakers are experts in their fields and delegates come away with lots of useful tips and pointers that they can put into use as soon as they are back in the office. Under the new SRA guidelines, these events are designed to provide practical information that can be taken and embedded into daily practice.

Commercial conveyancing will also be the focus of our next CPD event, which will take place at the GWR Steam Museum, Swindon on Thursday 15 June.
