This year’s edition has been extensively updated to include the latest guidance on good practice in residential conveyancing and is a crucial resource for answering queries arising from day-to-day property transactions.

The 28th edition includes new and updated guidance on:

  • SRA regulatory changes

The chapter on shared ownership will, in addition to comprehensive guidance on shared ownership transactions and the existing model leases, include detailed guidance on the 2021 model lease which will be in use for property built using funding granted after 1st April 2021. Contents include:

  • overview of the 2021 model lease
  • detailed guidance on the new and revised fundamental clauses including: revisions to alienation provisions, revised staircasing provisions and the new 1% staircasing option, the new repairing obligations, and changes to mortgagee protection and practice implications
  • SDLT
  • lease term and extension of leases, and
  • enfranchisement proposals

Throughout the book reference is made at appropriate points to the SRA Standards and Regulations, The Law Society Conveyancing Protocol (2019), the Standard Conditions of Sale and Code for Completion.
