Consumer panel opens consultation on conveyancing referrals

The Consumer Panel of the Legal Services Board has announced that it is carrying out an enquiry into conveyancing referral arrangements. This is an issue about which there are strong views and conveyancers are urged to take advantage of this opportunity to make sure their views are taken into account. A copy of the Terms of Reference is available from the download section of the Council of Licensed Conveyancers website.

All conveyancing referral arrangements will be covered, whether or not they involve payment or fees, including non-monetary arrangements that are linked to the introduction of clients, such as the provision of free or below-cost services in exchange for the referral of other business.

The deadline for evidence is 5pm on Friday 26 February 2010. Licensed Conveyancers are invited to respond direct.
