CONFERENCE PROGRAMME

09.30am CHAIRMAN’S INTRODUCTION

RENT CHARGES – A RIGHT CHORTLE OR JUST RUDDY CONFUSING?

Rent charges have been a huge topic of debate for the past few years in the property world. Much confusion still reigns. The purpose of this talk is to clear up the same and provide some certainty:

  • History of rent charges
  • What is a rent charge?
  • Why are they used?
  • Why be concerned?
  • Lenders views
  • Solutions to the same

Paul Sams, Partner, Head of Property, Dutton Gregory

SDLT REVIEW 2023

Following a consultation at the end of 2021 it is possible that mixed-use rates and multiple dwellings relief will be abolished, or significantly changed. If so, that will be the main topic, along with any other news.

Otherwise, we will discuss the many SDLT issues we need to consider on the apparently straightforward purchase of a house for £600,000, explaining the latest law and practice, with numerous worked examples, in relation to:

  • FTBR – first-time buyer relief
  • HRAD – higher rates on additional dwellings (the 3% surcharge)
  • MDR – multiple dwellings relief
  • NRS – non-resident surcharge (a 2% surcharge)

Paul Clark, Solicitor and SDLT trainer, Consultant, Cripps LLP

TOPICAL PROPERTY ISSUES AND CASE LAW UPDATE

This session will examine the implications for residential property of recent case law, practice guides and related developments. To ensure the content is both topical and relevant the issues to be covered will be determined nearer the time but are likely to include:

  • Implications of Spire Property Development LLP v Withers LLP [2022]
  • Building Safety Act 2022
  • Land Registration: Overseas Entities
  • Electronic & Digital Conveyancing: Land Registry proposals
  • New Homes Ombudsman
  • Overage after SPS Groundworks and Building Ltd v Mahil [2022]

David Keighley, Solicitor, Legal Lecturer and Trainer

COMPLETIONS: ARE YOU MISSING AND/OR OVERLOOKING ISSUES?

Having finally exchanged contracts and set completion you may think the worst is over: but is it…?  This session will look at various issues relating to completion and post completion including:

  • Why the Code for Completion isn’t all it seems to be!
  • Have you really exchanged: Aslam v Rehman 2022
  • Notice to complete and readiness to complete
  • Occupation “under the terms of the contract”
  • Capital Gains Tax:
    • Does working from home trigger a liability?
    • CGT time limits
  • Impact of the “Registration Gap” and Land Registry delays

David Keighley, Solicitor, Legal Lecturer and Trainer

MONEY LAUNDERING – THINKING ABOUT THE RISKS

This talks examines the risk to your conveyancing firm from money laundering. What you shouldn’t be doing. Why just ticking the compliance boxes, probably won’t help. Not being distracted by legal technicalities, or seduced by the promises of certainty from algorithms. The power of being realistic, pragmatic, and staff who keep thinking.

  • Does your law firm act for money launderers?
  • Money laundering happens somewhere else, not in my home town
  • ID documents: not worth the software package they were created on?
  • Effective money laundering reporting: why putting the responsibility on your conveyancers, not the MLRO, is the right thing to do
  • Why mindfulness is still your best defence against money launderers
