Law Society announces date for special general meeting

The Law Society has announced that a special general meeting initiated over the new TA6 conveyancing form will take place on Tuesday 23 July. This follows receipt of a requisition from 100 solicitors, as required under the Society’s bye-laws.

Following the release of the latest TA6 in March, campaigning organisation the Property Lawyers Action Group called for the SGM to debate and vote on a motion of no confidence in the Society’s ability to represent members who undertake conveyancing.

Law Society chief executive officer, Ian Jeffery, commented:

“It is disappointing that PLAG has felt it necessary to take this step,” said Law Society chief executive officer Ian Jeffery.

“However, the SGM is an opportunity for members to discuss with us the future of the home buying and selling process and how the Society can best represent its members, as changes are made over time to that process, to enhance the experience of consumers.

“There will be a vote on the no confidence motion if one is required on the day, but in any event, we will listen to and carefully consider the views of our members, expressed at the meeting and more widely.

“We have already taken steps to address the strength of feeling express by members by postponing compulsory implementation of the updated TA6 form. This allows for six months consultation to ensure we understand the full range of member views.”

The special general meeting will take place in-person at our headquarters at 113 Chancery Lane, London at 2pm and online.

Only Law Society members can attend and vote at the SGM. To register to attend the SGM, they will need to complete the registration form no later than 9am on Monday 15 July.
