SRA Competency B


All governments seek to help people get on the property ladder and there are several schemes available.

However, for the conveyancer this means more formalities, details and forms and the need to advise your clients. If you are not up to date with all of this you may lose a client or deny them the opportunity to take full advantage of the schemes.

The Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme was extended to 2023 and is expected to help many buy a new build home by then.

Help to Buy may "make the dream of owning your own home a reality..." but for the conveyancer of course there is a different reality - that of becoming familiar with the procedures, rules and timing and getting to grips with a forest of paperwork - and getting it right!
