Why we at CRD have to collect your data
We at CRD Solicitors would like to give you the best possible service when working with you. To enable us to do this and communicate, we correspond either by letter, fax, email and using conveyancing portals which provide information in respect of your transaction and the servicing of your transaction
How so we at CRD collect your data
We at CRD Solicitors will do this in a number of ways, either from telephone conversations with you, either in emails, written correspondence or using our various sale/purchase/remortgage/transfer of equity questionnaires and attendance notes as a result of meetings with you. This then enables us to create your file and profile which is used in residential and commercial conveyancing transactions. We also collect information from you in respect of Wills and Probate with our Wills questionnaires and employment law matters. This will involve sometimes taking formal instructions from you in meetings at our office or at your home. This information is used to assist us at CRD Solicitors in delivering the outcome for your particular matter.

Also with the HMRC Stamp Office and HM Land Registry or HM Land Charges Registry.
