Introduction

The Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme is designed to improve standards of conveyancing practice, enhance conveyancers’ credibility and deter fraud.

This live broadcast session will examine the main aspects of a key pillar of the scheme: the Conveyancing Protocol, which was updated in August 2019.

One key objective is to provide a commentary on important elements of the Protocol and the implications for you in your day-to-day practice.

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Regulatory requirements, including source of funds such as third-party contributions and verifying bank account conducted by the seller
  • Advising sellers on completing information forms

  • Leasehold conveyancing - enquiries, managing agents, third party consents to sale
