The Conveyancing Association (CA) has published its strategic plan outlining the work it will complete in order to improve the house moving experience.
The plan, entitled ‘Building the framework for the future’ sets out how the CA intends to deliver three key aims, namely: swifter certainty, fraud protection, and effective communication.
The aims have been broken into eight work streams which include enhanced ID verification and better search data provision.
Beth Rudolf, director of delivery at the Conveyancing Association, said: “At the CA we believe that, just because these targets may be difficult to achieve, it doesn’t mean we should shirk from them.
“In a number of key areas, progress has already been made – particularly in leasehold reform where, thanks to the concerted efforts of stakeholders, the government has committed to a review of leasehold tenure, and where we have already begun the process of developing greater consumer understanding.
The CA will be lobbying government to secure support in order to eventually mandate for a number of these changes.
Rudolf added: “There is clearly a lot more to be done, but this Strategic Plan provides an overall guide for us to follow and focuses us on the job ahead.
“We will be looking for further involvement from many practitioners, affiliates, stakeholders and other organisations, to make these ambitions a reality.”
