The conference will be held at Stamford Bridge in London on 1 December and the keynote address will come from consumer champion, Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town, a former member of the National Consumer Council, vice chair of the Financial Services Consumer Panel and chair of the Legal Services Consumer Panel.
The rest of the Conference will be split into panel debates with industry experts taking part in topical discussions.
There will be five sessions throughout the day looking at: the problems with the current home buying process; how involved parties can collaborate better; the difficulties of the leasehold system; how the number of abortive transactions can be reduced and what can be done to improve the amount of upfront information available.
Eddie Goldsmith, chairman of the CA, said: “This is definitely a pivotal moment for the conveyancing industry and the home purchase process itself and we at the CA believe industry stakeholders have a unique opportunity to reshape both for the better. In this sense the timing of our annual conference and dinner could not be better, and we have developed an agenda which focuses on a range of issues within the process, and invited participants to talk through the challenges and help us offer up solutions. The conference sessions will feed into the White Paper we are currently writing which will deliver the CA’s view on how we get to a much better process for all conveyancing stakeholders.”
