Active engagement work

CILEx is regularly working on behalf of our members on a variety of issues. Below is some of our ongoing work for which we would like to engage with the Conveyancing Specialist Reference Group in order to gain greater perspective and evidence from those working in conveyancing.

Upcoming Consultations

In the coming weeks CILEx shall be engaging with relevant stakeholders, including government departments, on the following issues and would like to hear your views on these topics:

  1. Have you had any issues with lender panels? If so, please let us know of your experiences.
  2. Do you have any uncertainties around the application of the Finance Act 2003 Section 75A with regards to SDLT?
  3. There has been increased interest in the development of property logbooks more recently. Do you think this is something which could benefit the home buying and selling process?

Please email your response to CILEx at

Previous work 

CILEx continues to promote member views throughout the legal community. We hope that the Conveyancing Specialist Reference Group grows with us. 

We have consulted with the Conveyancing Specialist Reference Group on a number of occasions in order to provide our work with greater amounts of evidence. Examples of our work can be found below, some of which includes direct references so our SRG engagement that proves to be increasingly valuable as we engage more with those in the legal services market:

A letter from the editor of the CILEx Journal, Val Williams

Dear members of CILEx Conveyancing SRG

I am writing to introduce myself. My name is Val Williams, and I am editor of CILEx Journal. As you know the Journal will, from now on, publish quarterly; so, in addition to that work, I will be developing bespoke, online content for each CILEx Specialist Reference Group and I am starting with the Conveyancing SRG!

I want to enlist your help to create the means for us to exchange key information; therefore, I would be happy to receive summaries of notable cases (reported and unreported) and articles about issues of interest and/or concern which ought to be made known to the other members of your SRG.

My aim is to source and report breaking news and the latest information and developments affecting your area of work; in addition, on your request or in response to a significant policy document or ruling, for example, I will commission and then post relevant editorials and commentaries.

With your help, we plan to advance your SRG as a membership network that will become an essential resource for members of all grades working in conveyancing, and for those with conveyancing practice rights.

To this end, I would welcome and appreciate your co-operation, and look forward to hearing from you. Please e-mail me at:

Thanks in advance
