Scheme Rules Amendments 2018 – UPDATE

Scheme Rules Amendments 2018 – UPDATE

Following our period for representations which ran from 2 February to 2 March 2018, the Legal Ombudsman is publishing an updated version of minor linguistic changes to its Scheme Rules.

The proposed changes have altered slightly after consideration of representations:

  • The change to the word ‘remedy’ in section 3.3(b) formerly proposed has now been discarded.
  • The names of several approved regulators who have changed their operating titles since the Scheme Rules were last revised have been updated.
  • Minor corrections of typographical errors have been made.

This revised version of the our Scheme Rules was submitted to the Legal Services Board for approval as required by Section 155 of the Legal Services Act.

The updated version can be viewed here.
