Course Conveyancing: The Mechanics of Exchange and Completion


Exchange of contracts is the key point in the conveyancing transaction. Many members of support staff carry out exchange, but have received little or no training and do not understand the process and the implications if something goes wrong. A failure to complete properly can lead to a negligence claim from the client (and do not forget the duties to lenders!) These aspects of the conveyancing transaction represent a key risk for conveyancing firms.

This half day course will be of use to unqualified staff that need to know more about the process or qualified solicitors who are new to the conveyancing process. The course will act as a useful supplement to CLT’s popular courses delivered by the same speaker: Conveyancing: An Intensive Workshop for Paralegals and Support Staff and Residential Property: An Intensive Introduction for Qualified Practitioners.

This practical course will cover:

  • Issues to check on a sale prior to exchange
  • Issues to check on a purchase prior to exchange
  • What is the Law Society’s Formulae for Exchange?
  • The practical issues arising on exchange
  • The Law Society’s Code for Completion by Post
  • Common pitfalls

You may also be interested in attending: Standard Conditions of Sale: A Refresher which takes place at the same venue in the afternoon.
