LOCAL LAND CHARGES CONFERENCE A SUCCESS


Maria Memoli, Council Member of Bristol Law Society and Law Society Council Member spoke at a Conference at the Grand, Bristol on the 21st February organised by the Pacs Group Limited and the Local Land Charges Institute. With experience in both the private sector and several years experience at senior management level in Local Government, Maria came with excellent credentials.

Maria spoke about the changing world for Conveyancers, from the point of view of Local Land Charges officers. She explained how the CQS was received and whether or not it was successful and what the future holds, the emerging Alternative Business Structures and what this means for the legal services market, P I Insurance, its future and Mortgage Lending panels and the changing criteria, Property fraud  and Anti-Money Laundering, the challenges facing Conveyancers , and how Local Land Charges could help to combat fraud. She touched on the Conveyancing Protocol and the new provisions for the Buildmark documents; the provisions of the new Localism Act and the potential future for Local Land Charges.

Maria will be writing a feature article for Legal Life shortly on one of these topics.
