LawCover's analysis of notifications against solicitors for the five years between 1995 and 1995 reveal the following: Poor communications with clients 55% (failed to adequately advise clients) 43% ... The overwhelming majority of claims still arise as a result of poor communications with clients and in particular from failure to adequately advise clients. Solicitors should always consider the risks of a transaction to the client and advise the client of those risks including the steps that can be taken to minimise them. In particular be cautious whenever a client opts to proceed without making enquiries or investigations that you feel should be made. In these circumstances record the terms of the advice and instructions in a file note and preferably confirm it in writing. Letters can be adopted from precedents contained in publications such as Garry Barnsley's Letters for Lawyers: Conveyancing. - LawCover Bulletin, March 2001 Very useful for conveyancing solicitors. Congratulations on its production and quality. - Professor Andrew Lang Precedent letters can be invaluable to a practitioner... As the author of this text rightly points out, despite their many virtues precedent letters are not as readily available as precedents for deeds, pleadings or agreements. It is this need for precedent letters that this text seeks to fulfil by providing a comprehensive set of precedent letters for the various steps involved in a conveyancing transaction as well as a few precedent letters for a leasing transaction. Conveyancing in particular is an area which is well suited to precedent letters as many of the same steps are repeated from file to file. The text is divided into three main sections, which contain precedents for conveyancing transactions when acting for a vendor or a purchaser followed by precedents for a lease transaction. The letters are presented in the order they would normally be required. A suggested coding for each letter is provided to enable easier access to the precedent letters once they have been transferred to a computer system. Paragraphs are numbered for ease of reference and optional paragraphs are also provided for inclusion where required... The conveyancing letters are quite extensive in their coverage... The [leasing] letters deal with many common clauses and situations and act as a valuable checklist... The text ... is based on NSW law... While some [letters] may be adapted by the insertion of parallel Victorian provisions, some are simply too different. The conveyancing procedure itself is also slightly different. However, there are many similarities and the precedents as a whole could still be useful as a basis for creating a set of Victorian precedents. The text will be a very valuable resource for NSW practitioners as it is comprehensive, well-presented and easy to adapt. - Law Institute Journal (Victoria), 2001
