Unregistered Land Conveyancing - A Practical Workshop
This practical course, aimed at trainees and junior solicitors, will give you the confidence to do unregistered land conveyancing. You will learn by working with unregistered title documents* how to establish a good root, a good chain of ownership, and which requisitions on title need to be raised, and those which can be safely ignored.
The seminar will not be a lecture on unregistered land conveyancing or a review of how unregistered land conveyancing differs from registered land conveyancing. It will be a practical and interactive session.
*Facsimile titles have been prepared which attendees will work through.
