CHAPS change ...

I have just read the article in issue 058 January 2016 about The Bank of England  extending CHAPS on property sales to 6pm. 

I agree wholeheartedly with Matt Faizey. Our staff have wives, partners and children and would like to spend time with them. So waiting to get keys until 6pm is unreasonable. As Lloyd Davies says, 1pm to 2pm should be the time removal
companies can expect to start moving a client’s goods into their new property.

Who will pay for the extra waiting time, or are removal staff expected to work for nothing? Do solicitors and Minouche Shafik work late for nothing?

Surely between the legal profession, banks and the removal industry some sensible time as suggested by Lloyd Davies could be set as to the time keys must be handed over.

I’m sure VOSA would be interested in having some input on this matter, especially drivers’ hours.
