Improving the home buying and selling process - Law Society response
The Law Society has responded to the Department for Communities and Local Government call for evidence on improving the home buying and selling process.
The call sought views on 'how to make the process of home buying and selling cheaper, faster and less stressful'.
We are broadly supportive of government’s proposals. We agree that the thoroughness of the current process is one of its strengths. It is our view that improvements can and should be made to the existing process to make it more efficient to all parties involved. The focus of these should be to reduce wasted costs and delay, to promote trust between buyers and sellers and to reduce the failure rate of transactions.
We hope that this call for evidence will result in improvements for consumers and for those acting for them.
