Response submitted

The Council of Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) are consulting on changes to their professional indemnity framework. The CLC will allow regulated firms to opt out of the master policy and will be introducing a participating insurers agreement with minimum terms of cover.

We have now responded to the consultation and we note that the changes planned by the CLC are intended to increase protections for consumers - and this is welcome.
