“Supporting licensed conveyancers with legal matters relating to the transfer of ownership of land or property”

Conveyancing technicians work under a licensed conveyancer, solicitor or fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives to support fee-earning activities. It is an entry-level role into the industry and so is suitable for candidates of all ages—whether you hold legal qualifications or not.

You’ll develop an understanding that each property transaction is unique and you’ll learn to work closely with clients who are the buyers and sellers of property, as well as the lending institutions that are often parties to transactions.
