Become a Licensed Conveyancer with the CLC qualification

Written by: CLC Property Law Regulators

Licensed Conveyancers are qualified, professional property lawyers who specialise in the legalities surrounding buying and selling property in England and Wales.

What do they do?

A Licensed Conveyancer will ensure that all documentation, contracts and financial arrangements associated with buying or selling a residential or commercial property or piece of land are in order.

They can do everything that a solicitor can do in a conveyancing transaction – they have the same legal authority to act.

How does the qualification work?

Studying to become a Licensed Conveyancer means you can become a qualified lawyer without needing a degree. You can study while you work, so you won’t have any student debt hanging round your neck.

There’s a distance learning programme or part-time study at an approved college of Further or Higher education to choose from. Either way, the course combines fast-paced learning with practical training.

Students need to complete a minimum of at least one year full time conveyancing experience, submit written assignments and sit exams in all aspects of property law.

What are the costs?

Training to become some other type of lawyer could cost you up to £50,000, whilst training to become a Licensed Conveyancer could cost you as little as £800.
