Programme objectives

  • Identify and summarise the changes to conveyancing practice;
  • Complete and lodge complex first registrations in the Land Registry;

  • Explain the tax implications of a property transaction.

Programme structure and approach to learning

In 2019 we saw the introduction of the new “pre-contract investigation of title” (PCIT) system, which improved the conveyancing process by ensuring any questions relating to the property’s title are raised and resolved before the contracts are signed. The new system is a fundamental change to the legal practice and procedures involved in buying and selling property. This certificate provides attendees with a comprehensive overview and understanding of the issues currently relevant to conveyancing practitioners.

This course is delivered via an innovative “flipped classroom” approach that offers participants ultimate flexibility in how they approach their learning. This format sees lectures released in an online tranche, with participants provided with a window of a number of weeks to view the recorded content and complete online learning activities in a self-paced manner. The online releases are bookended by two days of on-site workshops.

Designed with a practical focus, the course will review conveyancing best practice and consider the impact of recent practice updates and legislative changes. Students will be provided with precedents and learn through problem-based scenarios.

Participants will receive a copy of the Law Society Conveyancing and Landlord and Tenant Law manuals on registration.
