“Extremely useful” and “very helpful” - a jolly reaction to December’s residential conveyancing CPD event

A hardy band of solicitors and conveyancers braved snow and ice in early December, to attend our latest residential conveyancing CPD event.

The day-long seminar incorporated a range of topics from the industry’s leading organisations and speakers, including Robin Wells, head of sales from Future Climate Info (FCI), whose suite of environmental reports are now available to purchase from us.

Wells gave a “very helpful” talk about the environmental issues currently impacting the conveyancing sector and gave his expert advice on how to deal effectively with ‘further actions’ relating to the potential of significant risk.

DevAssist managing director, Paul Addison’s presentation – with its show-stopping title ‘How to avoid being sued for £2 million’ – also received rave reviews. Delegates learnt all about available planning reports, why they should be ordered and how they can reveal deal-critical information. 

Thames Water Property Searches team explained the importance of using an official CON29DW search. Delegates also updated their knowledge of Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS), which are an increasingly essential addition to the built environment in the fight against flooding.

The day finished with an interactive session delivered by author and non-practicing solicitor Stephen Desmond LLM, who offered advice on dealing with transactions involving high risk clients that present additional challenges for residential conveyancers. 

We were delighted that the event received such a warm reception from delegates. “Very good updates on content awareness and search tools,” said one audience member. “Great for keeping up to date generally with changes in law,” said another.

All in all, great work for an icy Monday in December. Season’s greetings everyone!
