With both house prices and property transactions on the rise, the outlook is good for the UK’s property solicitors. In fact, 66 per cent of residential conveyancers report a rise in new business, and 44 per cent say they believe the market will continue to improve in the near future. This is not a time for complacency, however. As the market continues to evolve and technology increasingly influences both the way conveyancers work and client expectations, it is more important than ever to be fully responsive to the latest changes in law and practice, to provide your clients with the most pertinent and up-to-date advice, and to ensure that their needs remain at the heart of your practice.
