Avoiding Negligence Claims in Residential Conveyancing

The last twelve months have seen some radical changes to the working habits of many  residential conveyancers with residential conveyancers working from home for some or all of the time and face to face contact with clients almost non-existent.

This combined with the astronomical amount of residential conveyancing business being undertaken by conveyancers inevitably will have the consequence of increasing the number of negligence claims.  An additional problem arises with the limitations arising on professional indemnity cover for residential firms.

It is more important than ever to ensure actual or potential claims are kept to a minimum.

As a consequence I thought it useful to provide a reminder of the sort of things that can cause problems examining recent cases and frequent areas of claim, and on 14 July between 2 – 5pm, I will be hosting a webinar which will explore:

  • Residential Leasehold Claims – the ground rent problem, defective leases
  • Problems with plans
  • Estate rent charges
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Problems with rights of way and easements

Key issues will be explored using a number of examples. 

Extensive notes will be provided and there will be an opportunity for questions.

I hope you can join me.
