Conveyancing in a temporary decline?

Post by category
Case Studies
Due to George Osbourne’s policy to increase stamp duty land tax on the purchase of additional properties, conveyancing has taken a small nose dive. Acumens report shows that there was a 9% decrease – three times the number in 2013 and 2014 - in number of active firms registering transactions.

However there are significant positives in the conveyancing market as growth has come from other sources such as Direct Enquires and Personal referrals. This should allow for firms to keep business coming through the door in a difficult time for the market.

Firms have recorded a 0.04% growth in 2015 compared to the previous year and the collective market share amongst the top 1,000 firms has risen to a new high of 71%, compared to 55% ten years ago. To continue this growth firms are going to face challenges with staff recruitment and are now more than ever looking for experienced conveyancers. Most firms are willing to offer attractive salary’s for experienced candidates making it a rewarding time to know your stuff.
