Revised Search Code and Consultation Announced
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO), owner of the Search Code of Practice, has announced a revised Code to reflect the new market environment while still maintaining standards. A corresponding consultation with key stakeholders has also been initiated. These developments are as a consequence of the recent suspension of the HIP Regulations meaning that the legal framework governing the provision of local and other property search reports has fallen away. PCCB welcomes the revision, consultation and also the aims to actively promote the Code as a mark of quality with key stakeholders and to add value to the Code by creating a clear differentiation in the market between reliable operators and those whose actions bring the whole industry into disrepute.
The full CoPSO press release is copied below.
