Conveyancing Theatre

The Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) is delighted to be sponsoring the Conveyancing Theatre at Legalex 2017.

Since 1985, the CLC has always looked to be a proactive regulator in anticipating and monitoring the issues that affect the licensed conveyancing community.

We work closely with all our licence holders and we listen to what they say, helping them to achieve the right outcomes for consumers. We know the firms we regulate extremely well and we know the market too.

Please come along to the Conveyancing Theatre for more information on a variety of conveyancing issues, new regulatory developments in both conveyancing and probate, and discover the benefits of CLC regulation.

London: Above and Below Ground

London sees more property transactions and developments than any city in the UK. But ongoing tensions between councils, residents and developers are changing it and shaping the conveyancing industry. From basement extensions to large-scale planning applications, through to London Underground extensions, the Croxley Rail Link, Crossrail and HS2, many issues faced in London are relevant elsewhere. Working in partnership with Geodesys, Nick from Groundsure will discuss the impact of these risks on UK property transactions alongside search options available to inform and protect all parties.
