The Conveyancing Handbook has been a trusted first port of call for thousands of practitioners for over 29 years.

This year’s edition has been extensively updated to include the latest guidance on good practice in residential conveyancing and is a crucial resource for answering queries arising from day-to-day property transactions.

The 29th edition includes new and updated guidance on:

  • changes to legislation on leasehold, ground rents and shorthold tenancies and commonhold;
  • indexation of rents and service charges;
  • SRA regulatory changes and guidance on undertakings;
  • money laundering reforms and the Economic Crime (Transparency and Enforcement) Act 2022; and
  • VAT and SDLT.

The chapters on electronic conveyancing, energy performance of buildings and registration have been thoroughly revised.

Throughout the book reference is made at appropriate points to the SRA Standards and Regulations, the Law Society Conveyancing Protocol (2019) and the Standard Conditions of Sale and Code for Completion.

Appendices include Law Society protocol, codes and formulae; and other Law Society practice information, including revised COVID-19 industry guidance.
