We are still seeing the problems of cyber fraud on a large scale which affects conveyancers more than most. Mortgage fraud and money laundering still haunts the conveyancing industry. In particular the case of Purrunsing v A’Court and HOC 2016 presents challenges for both seller’s conveyancers and buyer’s conveyancers.
In addition the SRA has now published consultations on the Handbook which they want to see containing new Principles and two new Codes of Conduct with stripped down rules on conflicts and confidentiality. Later this year the SRA will publish guidance to support their proposed Handbook changes. Conveyancers will be particularly affected. The SRA has also published a consultation on new Accounts Rules which could also prove challenging to conveyancers.
Our Speaker, Denis Cameron, will explain what these changes are and how they could/will affect you, the Conveyancer.
Speaker: Denis Cameron is well known to SLS having presented many seminars in the past.
Denis is a member of the Management Board at the Law Society and Chair of the Professional Standards and Ethics Committee. He lectures extensively on residential conveyancing topics, regulatory issues and money laundering.
