EFIS 65, June 2016 : Conveyancing - Core Law Soc.

You must login to download the contents of this EFIS.

On 12th May, the Law Society confirmed that the amendments to the CON29O form must be used on and after 4th July.

Subscribers to this range are advised to access this information which contains detailed transitional arrangements for the submission of the old and new editions of the CON29O form by following the link below at:-
www.lawsociety.org.uk/news/stories/Con29-and-con29O-enquiries


The new CON29 which replaces the existing CON29R, and the revised CON29O form have been updated to include community infrastructure levies (CIL), assets of community value and other legislative changes.

In future, local authorities will provide replies in a standard format which have been designed to assist conveyancers with the interpretation of the local authority's responses.

If an existing version of CON29R and CON29O is received before the end of 1st July, the local authority will provide replies to the current form.

If a current CON29 and/or CON29O is received electronically at any time on or after 2nd July or later, the local authority will provide replies to the new CON29O form.

If an existing version of CON29O is received by post, DX or by hand at any time on 2nd July or later, the local authority will decide whether to provide replies to the new or existing form(s).

If a current version of CON29O is still being processed after 1st July (e.g. because it was entered on the local authority's system before or on the 1st July) the local authority will provide replies to the current form(s).

The local authorities will only accept the new version of CON29O on or after 4th July.

Form CON29R will be removed from your library on 1st July.
