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

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.”

Why lawyers should be paranoid about client confidentiality

Facebook

In April 2016, a lawsuit was filed claiming one Chicago-based law firm had failed to protect confidential client information. The suit didn’t accuse lawyers at the firm of inadvertently sharing client information. In fact, according to The American Lawyer, “[t]he complaint makes no claim that data was stolen or used against clients.” The claim solely focused on the fact that lax data security could have put client information at risk. In other words, fail to take proper precautions to protect client confidentiality, and you could find yourself in hot water – whether your lack of preparedness breaches confidentiality or not.
