Improvements to Conveyancing Searches
Going on from the information released by CoPSO and PCCB regarding the improvement to the search code, Nick Small Snr, Director of Property And Land Information (PALI Ltd) stated, “This is a good move for the search industry. It ensures that the quality and standards of the companies providing searches to the legal and conveyancing profession continues to increase. It also puts pressure on the local authorities to improve their standards to try to achieve the levels of quality, accuracy and service provided by private search companies. All private search companies displaying the search code logo provide a multi faceted service giving the client a choice of service level from hard copy, post and DX through to fax, email and full online delivery with electronic payment or account facilities and their product fully indemnified.” This is not the case with all councils some of which are stuck in the sixties and can only deliver hard copy by post or DX. It is incredible to think that some councils, even though data is transmitted internally by email, will not fax or email information to private companies but insist on them driving many miles to pick up hard copies. These same councils espouse a high moral environmental position. Nick further states, “ Our company was a founder member of CoPSO and I personally contributed to the formation of the Search Code. We therefore are very supportive of the aims of CoPSO, the PCCB and the Search Code. Our clients can be confident of our commitment to continuous improvement in service and quality. Always look for the code logo. We wish you all prosperity in 2012”.
