Additional Module Information

Module Title Description Brochure
Understanding and Interpreting Freehold Title (to include Flying Freehold) This module enables you to have an understanding of freehold title, to include flying freehold. Download
Understanding and Reporting on Title Enquiries Module 2 aims to introduce you to title enquiries, and the importance of raising suitable enquiries. Download
Understanding and Interpreting Unregistered Property This module should provide you with an outline and understanding of the concept and laws surrounding unregistered land. Download
Understanding and Interpreting Leasehold Title Many conveyancers find leasehold properties daunting; indeed, they are more difficult to title check than freehold properties. This module guides you a grounding in title checking such properties (rather than being a guide as to how to convey leasehold properties.) Download
Understanding and Interpreting Leasehold Management Packs Module 5 provides an introduction to Leasehold Management Packs, and an outline of the necessary knowledge surrounding them in order to correctly understand the information they provide. Download
Understanding and Interpreting Shared Ownership In this module, we will be covering Shared Ownership Schemes and the concept of fundamental clauses. In addition, we will consider the impact of such schemes on Stamp Duty Land Tax, extending leases and taking possession of a shared ownership property. Download
Understanding and Interpreting New Build Title This module will give you guidance on how to deal with new build titles. These are often daunting and the contract pack can be very complex. We will consider plans, guarantees, service charges and how to report to the client. Download
Understanding and Interpreting Planning Permission and Building Regulations (including Listed Building Requirements) Planning Permission and Building Regulations are complex, and conveyancers are not experts in this field. This module aims to provide you with information that will enable you to ensure the interests of your client and mortgage lender are protected. Download
Understanding and Interpreting Search Results This module will provide learners with an understanding of search results, in order to be able to raise enquiries and report to your client with confidence. Download

Understanding and Interpreting SDLT In the final module of the Trainee Conveyancer Course, we identify the key principles and major issues surrounding Stamp Duty Land Tax, and how that knowledge should inform the day-to-day work of a conveyancer. Download


How long will the course take?
We anticipate that each module should take delegates approximately 40 minutes to an hour to complete, with a total of 12 – 14 hours required to complete the course. Delegates may complete the course over several days, whilst others will take several months. There is no time limit to completing the course.

How will delegates learn?
Delegates will be given access to our online training platform, which allows delegates to study at a time and place that is convenient for them. Delegates will be instructed to read the module handbook, either online or in its downloadable format, and will then undertake the module assessment online. Delegates will receive an automatic grade for that module once completed.

What certification will delegates receive?
Each delegate that successfully completes the course will receive a Conveyancing Academy Certificate of Achievement.

How can I monitor my delegates?
Each legal practice will be given “Teacher” administrator access to the course, allowing access to view delegate grades and monitor their progress.
