Time for national home moving digital identity system, industry tells MPs

first_imgA group of MPs and Lords have met estate agency, logbook and conveyancing sector representatives to grill them on how technology can drastically change the way the property industry checks people’s identities under AML and KYC rules.The All Party Parliament Group meeting heard that the UK is lagging behind on digital identity systems for residential sales which are already up-and-running in several European countries including Holland and Belgium.Hunters CEO Glynis Frew (pictured) told the meeting that agents can be required to check identities up to five times during a transaction.And Stuart Young, MD of Etive, told the meeting that too often conveyancers, lenders and estate agents were unable to trust each other’s identity checking and so these were duplicated during sales.Consequently, Young said, property transactions are taking longer than ten years ago. He also said the property industry is required to check 13.7 million people’s identities every year at a cost of £400m.The pair, who were joined by Stephen Ward of the Council for Licensed Conveyancers, asked MPs to persuade the government to provide seed funding to create a system of digital IDs for the property industry.This would then become self-funding once it was up and running if such a system became a legal requirement of the home buying and selling process, he said.All three agreed three government departments are involved – MHCLG, the Land Ministry and Digital, Culture, Media and Sport – and that it would be consumers who paid for and organised their own digital identity before being able to move home.“Covid has had a very big impact and has accelerated the need for digital identities as we cannot meet people in the same way to conduct ID processes,” said Young.Read more about digital identity.digital identity DCMS Etive stuart young Land Registry glynis Frew CEO MHCLG Hunters February 5, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Military Helicopter Assembly Line Inaugurated in Brazil

first_img Helibras opened a new assembly line at its Itajubá unit, in Minas Gerais, where helicopters EC725 will be manufactured to supply the Brazilian Armed Forces, as well as a civilian version of the same aircraft, the EC225, used as transportation for oil exploration platforms offshore. The total project investment is worth 420 million reals (US$ 207.86 million.) This includes company premises, training programs, and all necessary works and innovations for helicopter production. Through this agreement, Helibras is committed to producing 50 large multi-mission helicopters in Brazil. “It is a program that serves the interest of the Government to acquire customized helicopters with cutting-edge technology and an incentive in boosting the national industry; the Helibras / Eurocopter partnership enables the production of more complex aircrafts,” said Eduardo Marson Ferreira, President for Helibras. With respect to the supply chain, Helibras has already hired 14 Brazilian companies that manufacture parts and that provide necessary training to pilots, mechanics, technicians, and engineers, either in France or in Brazil. Representatives of the three branches of the Armed Forces are accompanying the project, to guarantee the transfer of effective technological demanded by the Brazilian Government in this program. Following the project’s schedule, four EC725 units were already submitted; one in July 2010, and three in December 2010. The final deadline for delivering the 50 aircrafts is 2017. The next helicopters constructed in Brazil are already in Itajubá. Among them is a unit that will serve as a model for the development and integration of systems and the first one to be completely processed in the Minas Gerais’ production line. Innovations promoted by the company, in agreement with the Armed Forces, include the development of the Engineering Center. In the last three years, this sector grew so much that the engineering population increased almost eight times: nine engineers in 2009 to 70 this year. The new facilities at the Helibras industrial complex in Itajubá, Minas Gerais, were built from the most up-to-date engineering techniques, the most advanced materials used in civil construction, and modern sustainability concepts.

Prepare for rain, hail and setbacks

first_imgInside 24 Brussells Avenue at Morningside, which goes to auction at 9am today, Saturday October 27.PREPARATION is key to a successful auction but things don’t always go to plan.And while wild weather may be one of them, stormy skies don’t usually deter genuine buyers.“I remember a house that was sold at auction for 4$ million last year,” Place Bulimba agent Shane Hicks said.“There was 25 registered bidders and a crowd of 250 and we were going to hold the auction on the tennis court.“But then a storm rolled in so we held it on the deck in the torrential rain. If people want to buy a house they will come rain, hail or shine.” Lightning pictured over Brisbane City, Brisbane 25th of October 2018.

Place Bulimba agent Shane Hicks will take this house at 24 Brussells Avenue at Morningside to auction today, Saturday October27, at 9am.As for sellers, Mr Hicks said there were a few things they could do to ensure their best shot at auction. These included providing a building and pest inspection to all prospective buyers, get a rental appraisal done, provide a report on all of the easements, stormwater and sewer pipes on the property, list comparable sales in the area to give the purchaser a broad guide as to the price range and ensure the agent is opening for inspection during the week and on a Saturday.“All of this will put the seller and agent in more control but more importantly make the buyers job of making the decision much easier and give them a great deal of confidence in that decision,” he said. Place Bulimba agent Shane Hicks.“From the start we encourage all interested buyers to start that pre-approval conversation with their advisers early,” he said. “The other issue that can come up is a party being out of town, but that’s usually an easy fix as they can register an agent or friend to bid on their behalf.“And sometimes a buyer has sold their own property and then there is an issue with that contract.“That’s when we encourage them to still attend the auction and if it doesn’t sell we can enter in to a private treaty.”last_img read more

O’Gara dropped by Ireland

first_img That performance appears to have been the final straw for coach Declan Kidney, who has named injury doubt Jonathan Sexton and the inexperience Paddy Jackson and Ian Madigan as his three fly-half options for Saturday’s game at the Aviva Stadium. Ulster’s Jackson only won his first cap against Scotland and struggled with his goal-kicking while Madigan, of Leinster, has yet to represent his country. Sexton, meanwhile, seems unlikely to feature after team manager Mick Kearney on Thursday rated his chances as “somewhat less than 50-50”. Like Sexton, locks Mike McCarthy and Donnacha Ryan and wing Craig Gilroy are included in the party despite struggling with injuries, but centre Darren Cave and under-20 back Robbie Henshaw miss out due to concussion. Ronan O’Gara has been left out of Ireland’s extended 32-man squad for next weekend’s RBS 6 Nations clash with France. The fly-half, 36 next week, is Ireland’s most capped player with 128 appearances but has been in poor form this season. After struggling against England in week two of the championship, and for Munster against Llanelli during the rest week, O’Gara’s dreadful cross-kick deep in his own half was highlighted as Ireland lost to Scotland last weekend. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
