Conveyancing has been turned by 'the powers that be' into a cheap, procedural paper exercise which it definitely should not be.

It should be an expensive advice laden exercise provided only by fully qualified experienced lawyers with no affiliation to any 3rd party and whose ONLY client is the buyer (who should be charged properly for that advice and time involved). Unless this happens, builders, lenders and developers will continue to run rings around unsuspecting members of the public who have been led to believe that conveyancing is just a necessary evil, a paper exercise to be obtained at the cheapest possible price.

Maybe they will live and learn, but I doubt it, particularly bearing in mind the utter impotence, as usual, of the Law Society on the subject.
