Sanjay Kahandelwal from GroundSure gave an excellent 1 hour CPD presentation on Energy Reports and Flood Risk that prompted many questions and quite a bit of debate. He even managed to point out some potential savings to attendees by clarifying that a GroundSure Homebuyers report includes a full Flood report so there is no need to incur the expense of ordering a separate Flood report.
Over a continental breakfast the group discussed the content and scheduling of future meetings and the following was agreed;
Location: Several attendees offered the use of their company offices to host meetings. These offers were gratefully accepted and future meetings will be held at different member’s premises.
Frequency: The meetings will be held every 2 months. The next will be in August.
Timing: We will continue with breakfast meetings initially. The start time will be changed to 08:00 arrival for an 08:15 start.
Topics: Planning and Building Control were the top items requested for future meetings so we will ask Council representatives from these departments to attend the next meeting to present and take part in a Q & A. Septic tanks also appear to be close to your hearts so we will ensure these are included in the presentation.
We will send a brief questionnaire to conveyancers in the area with a list of topics for future meetings asking them to rank them in order of priority.
All of the attendees agreed it was a very successful event that stimulated a great deal of discussion and everyone was keen to make sure we continued the meetings.
The meetings are open to all Conveyancers in the area and there is no charge for the events.
