FOR THE CONVEYANCING PRACTITIONER: THE DEFINITIVE HANDBOOK FOR CONVEYANCING PROFESSIONALS
An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
If you are involved in conveyancing, whether barrister or solicitor, this Handbook functions as your reliable and trusty guide through what are often the dense and complex thickets of conveyancing practice.
Now in its eighteenth edition, this 1,294 page hardback published annually by the Law Society, contains much valuable new material, including: the launch of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme…a new fifth edition of Standard Conditions of Sale…the newly introduced SRA Handbook and information on flood risk searches, as well as a new Law Society Conveyancing Protocol and revisions to the Law Society Code for Completion by Post…and of course, there’s a lot more.
Close perusal could well help you avoid errors, omissions and delays that often beset the most carefully prepared documentation and procedures. Take for example the section on mortgage redemption statements. This takes you through the basics, with warnings about possible pitfalls that may arise and other problem areas, including incorrect redemption statements, uncleared cheques and delays. Another example: the sections on the new developments regarding home information packs and the energy performance of buildings should enable you to clarify these issues for your clients.
A notable feature is the incorporation of a number of developments within a chronological account of a typical conveyancing transaction. Usefully, there’s a detailed index of almost eighty pages, enabling you to access information quickly and there are extensive tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments and European and international law. Also interspersed through the Handbook are useful websites for your further research.
Compiled by experts in this field, this is a research tool that’s comprehensive, authoritative and easy to use. During a year which has seen important charges affecting conveyancing practice and procedure, this latest edition of the Handbook is a real time saver that can only enhance the efficiency of your practice. The law is stated as at 1 June 2011.
