Gain practical insight into conveyancing practice changes with this popular course.

Applications are being accepted for the Diploma Centre’s Certificate in Conveyancing, which provides a practical insight  through precedents and learning through problem-based scenarios.

The ‘pre-contract investigation of title’ (PCIT) system, which improved the conveyancing process by ensuring any queries relating to the property’s title are raised and resolved before the contracts are signed, is a fundamental change to the legal practice and procedures involved in buying and selling property. Starting on 14 March, the certificate provides participants with a comprehensive overview and understanding of the PCIT system and of the issues currently relevant to conveyancing practitioners.
