Course Overview

Conveyancers, including those registered with the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme, are familiar with the Protocol. However, the Protocol itself says that its use is considered preferred practice, and that the best interests of the client take precedence over its provisions.

This course will provide viewers with an outline of the legal and practical implications which will affect them as a result of the various aspects of the Protocol that are not set out therein.

In addition, an understanding of the Standard Conditions of Sale is also important for conveyancers, so experienced lecturer Stephen Desmond will examine some of the more important Conditions during this course and will consider when amendments are justified.
