SOLICITOR Philippa Jerram is set to oversee the introduction of a new case management system at Sudbury law firm Steed and Steed which will help streamline the process of moving house.

She has joined the practice after 21 years working in mid Essex and is looking forward to building strong relationships with clients and property professionals.

“The coming few months will be an interesting year for conveyancers, with the imminent introduction of Home Information Packs. Solicitors will be much more active at the outset of the sale procedure, rather than picking up the pieces at the end,” she said.

“It is probably the biggest change for several decades and is aimed at making the house moving process easier. As a practice, we are doing dry runs to see how the new regulations will impact.

“Further changes will also come in the near future from the Government-led initiative of e-conveyancing, which will be introduced over the next 18 months. This will speed up the transaction process by impacting on an already increasingly computer-interfaced service.”

Geoff Challacombe, senior partner at the firm, said she was “a very welcome addition” to their conveyancing team.
