EU conveyancing services market: Commission study

— filed under: ,

The European Commission has published a study by independent consultants on the EU markets for legal services associated with house and land sales (conveyancing services). The study finds that consumers have greater choice and are on average paying less for conveyancing services under deregulated systems, with no loss in quality. The market for conveyancing services is worth about EUR 17 billion per annum; efficiency savings of even a few per cent following deregulation would therefore save consumers millions of euros each year. The Commission is calling on EU Member States to look at the findings and to review and update national laws which limit competition and the free circulation of services throughout the Single Market instead of serving the interests of consumers.
