Inside Conveyancing and Legal Update Conference

Leading conveyancing search provider Searches UK collaborated with legal news guru Inside Conveyancing as well as Environmental specialists Groundsure and to host its first legal CPD accredited conference last week at Birmingham Library.

A range of solicitors, conveyancers and legal experts came to learn and discuss legal updates that are expected to take place throughout 2018.

Most importantly, the event was well received by delegates, with hot topics being covered throughout the day. Groundsure started the day by discussing the importance of obtaining contaminated reports for clients and remained available throughout the day, as did the other speakers, to provide one to one advice.

Rob Hailstone, CEO of Bold Legal Group, and Paul Tucker, Consultant at Bold Legal Group, led a joint interactive presentation on, VAT on Disbursements and the Government’s attempts at improving the home Buying and selling process.


Shortly after, Jody Evans, Director of Business Development at Legal Eye provided useful tips and details for firms to consider when preparing for the introduction of GDPR which is due to take place this year on 25th May 2018.

Cyber-Crime specialist and founder of Think Marble gave firms an insight into the mind of a cyber-criminal and how easy it is for a firm to be targeted. Essential advice was provided in terms of how to combat this and protect data.

The afternoon was far from dull, when attendees were provided the opportunity to discuss Land Registry updates in addition to any concerns and related queries they had. The discussion was led and presented by Jamie Winch, Policy and Stakeholder Engagement Manager and Gill Parrish who specialises in Customer Engagement and Management Teams at the Land Registry.
