Residential Conveyancing Practice
A Guide For Support Staff And Paralegals

Russell Hewiston

Overview

This crucial new training manual gives support staff and paralegals a deeper understanding of the legal principles, regulations and good practice underlying residential conveyancing procedures and a sound grasp of the risks associated with their work.

In this book, transactions of leasehold and freehold titles are illuminated by clear and concise guidance from a leading academic lawyer with over 25 years of experience teaching conveyancing to students and practitioners.

The most important risks and practice points are highlighted through:

Aligned to the requirements of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Protocol, this book provides law firms and their staff with an invaluable aid to training, risk management and improving standards of competency and compliance.
