Residential Leasehold Conveyancing for Support Staff

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at providing training to members of staff who are currently undertaking some aspects of freehold conveyancing with an introduction to the conveyancing process involved in leasehold sales and purchases. The course is also suitable for staff providing support to fee earners, trainees, new recruits, and qualified lawyers new to or returning to residential conveyancing but who have some experience and a basic understanding of the conveyancing process.


The one day course provides informative practical training on the law and procedure that underpins the leasehold conveyancing process. It examines what are the key components of a well drafted residential lease, the different aspects of the conveyancing process and focuses on issues including, prescribed clauses, the demise structure and common parts, repairing obligations, insurance, forfeiture, alienation and service charge as well as landlord and leaseholder covenants.

Particular attention is given to onerous lease provisions – ground rent, administration charges, legal costs and term as well as exploring lender requirements and basic issues such as the difference between leasehold and freehold acquisitions and the disadvantages of the former over the latter.

The course examines the process from taking instructions to completion and file closure and explores forms to be completed and dealing with clients.

Delegates are provided with a training manual and are given ample opportunity to ask questions of the course presenter.
