We are proud to be associated with a brand-new initiative to improve the experience of home movers and professionals involved in the home moving process.

National Conveyancing Week has been launched to raise the profile of organisations who conduct property transactions, with the inaugural event taking place from 20th-24th March 2023.

Property lawyers up and down the country are taking part in a series of events over the course of the week designed to educate and inform all those involved in the home-moving process about the often complex role of the lawyer in helping people move home.

The property market is the backbone of the UK economy. A healthy property market will generate c. £50bn of economic activity each year as home movers pay for the direct home moving costs (banks, mortgage brokers, estate agents and property lawyers) alongside an estimated £25,000 per home move on soft furnishings, technology and connectivity, and white goods.

Since 2020 the property market has seen record high numbers of people moving. Factors like home-working have seen significant demographic shifts in lifestyle as people have sought more space; moving away from commuter belts into more rural locations and seeking additional rooms for home offices and studies.

This demand has driven record house prices and resulted in removals firms, estate agents, banks, and property lawyers struggling to cope with record levels of demand for their services.

Throughout the course of National Conveyancing Week, estate agents, mortgage brokers and introducers, and the home-moving public are invited to take part in a series of in-person events, and online and on-demand sessions to better understand the role of property lawyers in the home moving process.

Founder of National Conveyancing Week Rob Hailstone says:

“Home buying and selling is one of the most important events that takes place in the lives of nearly everyone at some point in time.  It can be time consuming and difficult to understand for many. National Conveyancing Week aims to help de-mystify the many strands that make up the process, not just for the general public but also for the numerous stakeholders involved in it.”

Tom Ansell, head of residential conveyancing, added

“We’re delighted to be supporting the BLG National Conveyancing Week. We see this as an opportunity to shine a spotlight on the positive work that is going on throughout the conveyancing profession. It’s also a chance to provide clarity on the role of a conveyancer and how the sector is moving forward”.

National Conveyancing Week takes place between 20th -24th March. For more information see https://conveyancingweek.co.uk/
