Scottish Parliament: Defective and Dangerous Buildings (Recovery of Expenses) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (3 Apr 2014)

David Stewart: ...ideally I would have liked, though I believe that my bill is an important first step and will make a significant difference to local authority cost recovery powers. The response from the Edinburgh Conveyancers Forum to the committee’s call for evidence sums up the position well: “Whilst the charging orders proposed are not a full answer to these specific issues in themselves they would...

Water Bill — Report (2nd Day) (31 Mar 2014)

Baroness Northover: ...published a note entitled Homebuyers and Their Flood Risk, in which we have explained the information currently available to prospective homebuyers. It is a well established principle of the conveyancing process that the onus is on the buyer of a property to conduct their own searches and investigations into the potential risks to that property. In England, the Environment Agency provides...

Public Bill Committee: Consumer Rights Bill: Clause 63 - Contract terms which may or must be regarded as unfair (6 Mar 2014)

Stella Creasy: ...for them about how they can challenge the idea that they should both pay for the same transaction. That is different example from a payment made in the course of a sale, when somebody might pay for conveyancing and for the services of a solicitor. Those are two different types of service. I hope that clarifies  the context in which we think there should be an avenue for legal challenge...

Business of the House (27 Feb 2014)

Madeleine Moon: The Law Society has a rigorous conveyancing qualification for solicitors, but some mortgage lenders now require solicitors to undertake the conveyancing qualification scheme run by themselves and have a £5 million bond for negligence rather than the £2 million required by law. May we have a debate on how lenders are adding to the costs of conveyancing, reducing choice for consumers and...

Land Registry — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Feb 2014)

Michael Fallon: ...version of the report has been supplied to one of the unions under a freedom of information request. My hon. Friend the Member for North West Norfolk (Mr Bellingham) asked me specifically about conveyancing self-service. I make clear to him that the current customers of the Land Registry will have their views sought before any new or revised services are launched. They would certainly be...

Water Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (11 Feb 2014)

Baroness Northover: .... To add to what I have said to the noble Lord, Lord Grantchester, I also point out that the seller is required to fill in a property information form—he will be aware of that—as part of the conveyancing process. This form asks questions about the flood risk history of the property, and if the seller provided misleading information there would be potential for the buyer to seek damages.

Manorial Rights (England and Wales) (15 Jan 2014)

Michael Fallon: ...some cases, landowners have always known that their properties are subject to these rights, either because the rights are referred to in the old title deeds or because they were discovered by their conveyancer when they bought. However, in other cases, these rights were not apparent at the time of purchase, and owners are finding out about them for the first time when they are contacted by...

Scottish Parliament: Title Conditions (Scotland) Act 2003 (9 Jan 2014)

John Lamont: ...after all the houses in the new estate are sold, which means that they no longer own the benefited property. That was all explained to us very clearly by Professor Robert Rennie, who taught me conveyancing and commercial missives at the University of Glasgow. At times, the committee evidence session felt more like a tutorial, but the committee heard that there were issues surrounding the...

Public Bill Committee: Local Audit and AccountabilityBill [Lords]: Clause 27 - Declaration that item of account is unlawful (12 Nov 2013)

Andy Sawford: ...might be negotiated up front by the joint procurement body or by the independent audit panel appointing auditors. We all know from various parts of our lives, whether that is seeking legal advice, conveyancing or banking charges, that we can at times be surprised by the charges that we find ourselves having to meet. We would not want local authorities to be prey to the perhaps exceptional...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Blood Donations:  Ban on Gay Men (5 Nov 2013)

John McCallister: ...Minister getting his legal advice from?  He really ought to think about changing them.  He really ought to think about advising whoever he has on retainer to, perhaps, go off and deal with wills, conveyancing or something, because he is not getting good advice or he would not keep losing case after case after case.  Effectively, the court is doing the job that the Minister should be...

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill: Committee (3rd Day)(Continued) (23 Oct 2013)

Lord Turnbull: be treated as having given another person an acknowledgement in writing of the right of that other person to production of the document and to delivery of copies of it, and (b) section 9 of the Conveyancing Act 1881 is to have effect accordingly, and on the basis that the acknowledgement does not contain an expression of contrary intention.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 193 - Pre-completion transactions (18 Jun 2013)

Catherine McKinnell: ...of the Stamp Taxes Practitioners Group that the new legislation is likely “to severely hamper genuine commercial and residential property transactions because it is not readily intelligible to conveyancers and property lawyers who will need to apply it in practice. The drafting is tortuous, subsales (the most common type of transaction covered by the draft clauses) are variously defined...

Department for Communities and Local Government (26 Mar 2013)

Alison Seabeck: ...and electricity safety check certificates. Having got those certificates, she trusted, as anyone would, that all the work and inspections had been carried out to the required standard, as did her conveyancing solicitor and surveyor. It later emerged that all the traders and engineers who had issued those certificates were personal friends of the previous owner, and it appears that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Jan 2013)

David Cameron: My hon. Friend makes a very good point, and I will look closely at this. We do want to see a competitive market in financial services and conveyancing. It is a major issue in our economy at the moment to get that mortgage market moving. There are good signs, as the Governor of the Bank of England said last night, that credit conditions are easing, but we need to make sure that they are easing...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Unadopted Roads: Committee for Regional Development Report (4 Dec 2012)

Dolores Kelly: simplify the process and to hold people to greater account. Other Members, including Mr Dickson in particular, referenced the responsibilities on the Law Society and lawyers when doing their conveyancing work and giving advice to potential homebuyers.  After all, Mr Speaker, the purchase of a new home is the largest investment that most of us will ever make.  During the Committee's...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Unadopted Roads: Committee for Regional Development Report (4 Dec 2012)

John Dallat: of the most tetchy — if I can use that word — meetings was with the Law Society, at which we indicated that we believed that its members should be made more amenable to their involvement in conveyancing and should ensure that all the services that are supposed to be in place are in place.  From correspondence with the Law Society, I know that it was not too happy about that, but...
