Following the case of P and P v Owen White and Mishcon de Reya [2018] 3 WLR 1244, there has been a greater awareness (and concern) over property fraud, the devastating consequences it brings with it, and how solicitors can avoid it.

Our webinar explores this complicated area and looks at the practical measures taken since Mishcon de Reya to reduce the future risk of fraud occurring.

Originally broadcast on 15 October 2019, this webinar covers:

  • background to the Mishcon de Reya case
  • how the Conveyancing Protocol and conveyancing practice generally has been adapted to reflect the changed landscape
  • the old and new Codes for Completion compared
  • whether the end of cut-price conveyancing is in sight
  • future possible risks and how to avoid them
