EFIS 115, November 2017 : Conveyancing - Core Law Soc.

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

On 13th November, the Bank of England took over the direct delivery of the Clearing House Automated Payment System (CHAPS) as part of an overhaul of the Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) platform.

On 15th November, the Law Society unexpectedly published a press release on their website concerning changes to the definition of a "clearing bank" which is contained within condition 1.1.1(b) of the Standard Conditions of Sale (SCS) and condition 1.1.1(c) of the Standard Commercial Property Conditions of Sale (SCPC).

Please follow the link below to the Law Society's website at:-

www.lawsociety.org.uk/news/stories/changes-to-standard-conditions-of-sale-and-standard-commercial-property-conditions/

At the end of the Law Society's press release, they state that:-

"Although an exact date cannot be provided as to when the necessary amendments will be made, we expect these to be completed in the near future. In the meantime, you should amend the special conditions to take account of these changes."

Because Oyez was not made aware of the Law Society's intention to update SCS and SCPC in accordance with their press release, we can only draw the attention of our customers to the Law Society's press release and invite conveyancers to use their professional judgement in relation to the guidance which the Law Society has offered.

We will keep you informed of any further developments as they unfold.

At this time we are enclosing form SCS1_2 and SCS1_2_Expandable which have received slight field amendments that do not relate to the above.

Finally find available CON29E which has been amended to include field names.

These forms can be used immediately.
