The Conveyancing Association (CA), the leading trade body for the conveyancing industry, has today published its White Paper on ‘Modernising the Home Moving Process’ in which it outlines how a future, more certain and transparent process could operate.
The Paper is a comprehensive look at the UK’s current home moving process incorporating the results of the CA’s own research, its consultations with a variety of stakeholders across the industry both in the UK and abroad, and a look at the solutions employed in other jurisdictions around the world in order to identify current constraints in the UK and potential solutions.
From gathering this evidence and following discussions of potential solutions, the CA is able to postulate what the future might hold in terms of its vision for a data-sharing, collaborative, digital home moving service. However, the CA is quick to point out that more fundamental actions need to be taken now to enable such a vision of the future.
The White Paper focuses particularly on the benefits to be gained from creating greater certainty far earlier in the home moving process. It suggests a number of ways in which this can be achieved.
