Conveyancing in the Future

Conveyancing and Practice Management Seminar

Thursday 7 June 2018

9.30 am – 1.00 pm and 2.00 - 5.30pm

          Speakers:  Mr Simon Murray and Mrs Ruth Craig

 Cost:  £100


This is the third annual three hour Conveyancing CPD event that Simon Murray and Ruth Craig have presented at the Institute of Professional Legal Studies.

As in previous years they will present on topical and relevant current property issues and suggest how practitioners can respond to the ever changing demands of this area of practice.  This was “sold out” last year leaving some applicants disappointed so do book early.

The seminar will include:

  • Updates on recent conveyancing decisions and the practical implications these may have for your practice;
  • How to fix “broken” apartment developments;
  • How the General Conditions of Sale may look after the 3rd Revision and how this may change practice;
  • The new Memorandum of Understanding between solicitors, agents and surveyors;
  • Practical tips regarding Land Registry;
  • How to avoid conflicts of interest; and
  • The effects of the changes in cheque clearance

3 CPD hours will be awarded for attendance at this Seminar. These hours will meet the three hour compulsory conveyancing CPD requirement for conveyancing solicitors and also the compulsory practice management CPD requirement.
