Eddie Goldsmith, chairman of the Conveyancing Association, explains what the trade body’s priorities are for 2017 as it collaborates with stakeholders to improve the legal side of buying a home. The topics under discussion are not new to people who have been involved with the sector for years as borne out in the Conveyancing Association document "Modernising the Home Moving Process" which include:
- What are the reasons for delays?
- Can we deliver more upfront information?
- How can we improve the process?
- What can we do about lowering the number of abortive transactions?
All of which need to be acted upon to make the suggested changes a reality.
