Introduction

Concentrating primarily on changes over the last 12 months, this seminar is ideal for the busy conveyancer; it is very practical and relevant to your day-to-day practice.

Some of the changes are small and could easily 'sneak up on you'. Others can be more significant for the way you carry out your professional responsibilities.
