Availability: Published

Refining conveyancing procedures can save valuable time and money and so contribute towards a profitable practice. Using checklists is a reliable method of avoiding pitfalls and of ensuring that all the necessary steps in a transaction have been successfully fulfilled, in order and to deadline.

Conveyancing Checklists provides a comprehensive range of checklists and standard letters that follow the order of a transaction.

This fully updated fourth edition covers:

  • the Conveyancing Protocol 2019;
  • updated Law Society Code for Completion by Post;
  • changes to property and environmental searches and forms, including the Standard Conditions of Sale and Standard Commercial Property Conditions; 
  • fully revised standard letters and a comprehensive Model Solicitor’s Property Report; and
  • changes to stamp duty land tax and land transaction tax (Wales).


That this is the fourth edition of this book is testament to its usefulness for conveyancing solicitors, paralegals and students alike. It is a very comprehensive collection of checklists, procedures and template letters...
