Full description

Conveyancers are increasingly faced with an ever growing list of suggested searches and enquiries on a residential freehold purchase transaction. What is best practice?

This practical half day course will assist conveyancers to identify which searches to carry out and will consider problems which frequently arise on search results and how far you can be expected to deal with them. The course will stand alone or will complement CLT’s popular course Residential Property – An Intensive Introduction for Qualified Practitioners.

The course will cover:

  • Which searches should you carry out – an overview
  • Common tricky search results
  • What further enquiries should you raise when you have received your search results?
  • What is an acceptable response to your enquiries?
