25 March 2013

SearchFlow, the electronic conveyancing search provider, has announced the first ten dates of its 2013 programme of CPD seminars.

Following a successful programme of events in 2012, SearchFlow has now expanded its series for this year, aiming to cover up to 80 local seminars throughout the remainder of this year offering professional training and development for legal professionals in the residential property market across the UK.

The informal seminars will be led by property industry experts who will focus on essential updates on search due diligence and practice management.

Each session is tailored to the region in which it is held and will identify key property search risks in the area, along with essential risk management and compliance updates for legal firms.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Environmental risks due to contaminated land
  • Latest implications of flooding and client protection in respective regions
  • Safeguarding your practice on standards and security
  • Looking through a developer’s eyes on risks and opportunities in your region
  • Avoiding delays and rejections through mapping accuracy

The sessions are free and all attendees will receive 2 CPD points and receive the opportunity to network with other legal professionals in the residential market.

Richard Hinton, business development director of SearchFlow said:

“It’s vital conveyancers and property lawyers understand the specific risks associated with property transactions in their region. Being able to advise buyers on the potential for these risks enables them to provide effective, efficient and thorough due-diligence.

“Each of our seminars will be tailored to the region in which they are taking place and run by recognised industry experts. There will be no generic material, all discussions will be focussed on the key risks associated with that area whether it’s subsidence, flood, contaminated land, HS2, as well as the new pressures from new build development and  other property risks. The sessions are designed to be intimate in nature so attendees can get the most out of them; however, this means that spaces are limited so we encourage people to book in advance.”

How best to achieve independent regulation under the Legal Services Act?

Craig Wakeford LSB

Independent regulation gives confidence to consumers, providers, investors and society as a whole that legal services work in the public interest and support the rule of law. The Legal Services Act 2007 does not require all approved regulators to be structurally separate from representative bodies. Instead, the Legal Services Board is required by the Act to produce internal governance rules (IGR) which apply the principle of regulatory independence in legal service regulation. We are currently running a consultation on the IGR which continues until 9 February.
