(30 Jun 2016)

Kevin Hollinrake: my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Just about all the people in the property sector to whom I have spoken are against this move, whether they are members of the Conveyancing Association, or solicitors, house builders or property agents.

Conveyancing (7 Jun 2016)

Dominic Raab: England and Wales in 2014-15. About a million of those—the vast majority—were residential sales and the amount of human as well as monetary capital caught up in and reliant on the conveyancing process at any one time is difficult to overestimate. The process, which delivers a secure and marketable titled property, is important to the parties to the transactions and to our underlying...

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...with a 150 year history … It conducts its business impartially and free from any conflicts of interest. It grants and guarantees title on all transactions so providing the security of tenure and conveyancing machinery on which a stable society depends and without which the property transfer and mortgage markets could not function”. We would do well to listen to that view. Of course,...

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...the post-sales restrictions. This will help to standardise the approach to securing starter homes and reduce burdens on the planning applications process. It will build the restrictions into the conveyancing process so that first-time buyers and their advisers are aware of, and have certainty on, our approach. Finally, I wish to be clear that we have listened to noble Lords’ concerns...

Scottish Parliament: Land and Buildings Transaction Tax (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (8 Mar 2016)

Jackie Baillie: for a period of 14 days, is the more sensible option. The Law Society believes that it is a better and more workable option: to be frank, we should take heed of that, given its experience in conveyancing. The proposal would avoid unintended consequences, which I know the cabinet secretary is keen to do, so I hope that he, too, will support amendment 17.

Land Registry — Question (2 Feb 2016)

the Earl of Courtown: My Lords, I thank the noble and learned Baroness for that point. She is quite right—the integrity of the Land Registry has to continue; it has to be trusted by customers, people selling property, conveyancing bodies and the law societies. At an early stage, the project team engaged with officials across Whitehall, and outside government we have been in contact with the Land Registry...

Property Boundaries (Resolution of Disputes) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (11 Sep 2015)

the Earl of Lytton: ...or traced plans, plans not to scale, or plans defaced with overzealous outlining, subsequently photocopied and then re-coloured. This is a legacy issue, an historic failing of those involved with conveyancing at a time when, I am afraid to say, precise boundaries did not matter that much.

I would suggest in support of the Law Society’s amendment...
