One of our important roles is helping to shape policy and procedures that impact on CILEx members and our CILEx Authorised Entities. We can do this by responding to consultations and calls for evidence.
One such was a recent call for evidence on improving the home buying and selling process by the Department for Communities and Local Government. Each year more than one million homes are bought and sold in the UK, with a process rated as one of the most stressful experiences a person will go through.
With CILEx Conveyancing Practitioners and Authorised Entities involved in the process, we were keen to feed in to any new government proposals.
Our response proposed the following.
We are supportive of changes to streamline the home buying and selling process, providing the consumer with trust and security as well as the opportunity for appropriate redress.
