National Conveyancing Week 20-24 March
Bell Lamb & Joynson is thrilled to support the first-ever National Conveyancing Week, an initiative aimed at enhancing the experience of both home movers and professionals involved in the home moving process.
From March 20-24, 2023, property lawyers from all over the country will participate in a range of events intended to educate and inform everyone involved in the home-moving process about the complex role of lawyers in assisting people in relocating.
The UK property market is a vital contributor to the economy, producing approximately £50 billion in economic activity every year, with home movers paying for direct home moving costs such as banks, mortgage brokers, estate agents, and property lawyers, as well as an estimated £25,000 per home move on soft furnishings, technology, connectivity, and white goods. Since 2020, record numbers of people have been moving due to factors like remote work, resulting in significant lifestyle changes as people seek more space, move away from commuter belts into more rural areas, and seek additional rooms for home offices and studies.
This demand has resulted in record-high house prices and removals firms, estate agents, banks, and property lawyers struggling to cope with the unprecedented demand for their services. National Conveyancing Week offers estate agents, mortgage brokers, and the home-moving public the opportunity to attend a series of in-person events, as well as online and on-demand sessions, to better understand the crucial role of property lawyers in the home-moving process.
Rob Hailstone, the founder of National Conveyancing Week, emphasises the importance of the event in demystifying the many strands that make up the process for the general public as well as the numerous stakeholders involved.
Mike Leeman, Managing Partner at Bell Lamb & Joynson, stated, "We are proud to support the National Conveyancing Week initiative and play our part in improving the experience of home movers and professionals involved in the home moving process. This is an important event that helps to demystify the complexities of the home moving process and raise awareness of the vital role that property lawyers play in ensuring a successful home move."
