Free Seminar: Understanding Further Actions within Residential Transactions



Further Action Environmental Reports can cause hold ups in the conveyancing process. Our seminar delivered alongside our industry experts will give you the tools to tackle these outcomes more effectively, minimising the impact on the property transaction.


Checking for environmental risk is an important part of the conveyancing process, but sometimes potential issues require further investigation to establish a clearer picture of the actual risks. As part of our ongoing programme to educate and add value to your business, we are delighted to offer you a FREE place on our FCI Roadshow – with two dates and two different locations to choose from, we are bringing the experts to you.

Expert speakers representing all the individual risk elements will provide a clear and concise overview of how and why further actions are triggered in the first instance and provide clear and definitive advice on the next steps you need to take to overcome and improve the outcomes.


Expert Speakers


Trevor Hellawell, ExL Practice Development

The Environment has not gone away, solicitors must take steps to protect their clients against buying their way into an environmental issue. But, solicitors are paid less now than before. How do we reconcile the two? Slicker and leaner environmental reports is one way, but with the new SRA rules, perhaps outsourcing is another. The presentation will reflect on the current pressures on price and how they can be met at the same time as providing a top-class environmental service to clients.
