Avoiding the Pitfalls of Conveyancing

Date: 16th November 2017 - 12.00 - 5.00pm
​Location: Leeds Law Society, 62 Wellington Street.

Further Action Environmental Reports can cause hold ups in the conveyancing process. The seminar delivered alongside our industry experts will give you the tools to tackle these outcomes more effectively, minimising the impact on the property transaction.

Checking for environmental risk is an important part of the conveyancing process, but sometimes potential issues require further investigation to establish a clearer picture of the actual risks.

Expert speakers representing all the individual risk elements will provide a clear and concise overview of how and why further actions are triggered in the first instance and provide clear and definitive advice on the next steps you need to take to overcome and improve the outcomes.

Expert Speakers

Trevor Hellawell, ExL Practice Development - The Environment has not gone away, solicitors must take steps to protect their clients against buying their way into an environmental issue. But, solicitors are paid less now than before. How do we reconcile the two? Slicker and leaner environmental reports is one way, but with the new SRA rules, perhaps outsourcing is another. The presentation will reflect on the current pressures on price and how they can
be met at the same time as providing a top-class environmental service to clients.

Robin Wells, FCI - Robin will deliver a presentation on key risks and handling Environmental Further Action Reports offering clear and concise next steps, giving you the tools to move the property transaction forward.

Tom Backhouse, Terrafirma - Speaking on the increasing awareness of mining risk, emerging changes to guidance, case studies, dealing with mining further actions, and handling the next steps.

Mark Bentley - Speaking on key flood risks and how best to handle flood further actions and advice on next step solutions to satisfy lender requirements and provide peace of mind to property purchasers.
