Electronic conveyancing search service SearchFlow has released the latest dates for its CPD seminar series.

Aimed at legal professionals in the residential market, the seminars are led by recognised industry experts who will highlight the latest developments in risk management and compliance in the property transaction.

Specific topics include:

  • Developments in lender panels and the role of CQS;
  • The common pitfalls in compliance rules;
  • Changes in flood risk requirements – are you sure you know your local area?;
  • How legal indemnities insurance can absorb conveyancing risk and provide wider protection to those involved in the conveyancing process; and
  • Identifying which of the due diligence searches are relevant to the property

Places are strictly limited, but all attendees will receive three CPD points and have the option of staying for a networking buffet lunch.

The venues and dates are as follows:

Leeds, Thursday 27 September, Hilton Hotel, Neville Street, Leeds LS1 4BX, 9.15-12.45.

Richard Hinton, business development director of SearchFlow, said: “The two big buzz words in the property industry today are ‘risk’ and ‘compliance’, and keeping up with legislative changes and requirements is a challenge for everyone.

“As such SearchFlow has designed a practical seminar programme designed to help conveyancers work efficiently and, more importantly, compliantly.

“We remain committed to ensuring best practice in the property transaction and our CPD seminar series is designed to deliver all the information you need to run your business successfully and to give the homebuyer peace of mind.”

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption.
