MOL, an expert in flexible online learning, and Total People – the North West’s leading apprenticeship provider – are proud to have been associated with a brand-new initiative to improve the experience of home movers and professionals involved in the home moving process. 

National Conveyancing Week has been launched to raise the profile of organisations who conduct property transactions, with the inaugural event taking place over this past week (20th-24th March 2023).

Property lawyers up and down the country have been taking part in a number of events  designed to educate and inform all those involved in the home-moving process about the often-complex role of the lawyer in helping people move home. 

MOL and Total People have supported the week with endorsements from both learners and employers, showing the value of flexible learning, upskilling and joining a growing sector. Budding conveyancers can choose to study part-time conveyancing courses with MOL, whilst still working, or can start  a conveyancing apprenticeship with Total People, offering the opportunity to earn whilst learning. 

The property market is the backbone of the UK economy. A healthy property market will generate c. £50bn of economic activity each year as home movers pay for the direct home moving costs (banks, mortgage brokers, estate agents and property lawyers) alongside an estimated £25,000 per home move on soft furnishings, technology and connectivity, and white goods. 

Since 2020 the property market has seen record high numbers of people moving. Factors like homeworking have seen significant demographic shifts in lifestyle as people have sought more space, moving away from commuter belts into more rural locations and seeking additional rooms for home offices and studies. 

This demand has driven record house prices and resulted in removals firms, estate agents, banks, and property lawyers struggling to cope with record levels of demand for their services. 

Throughout the course of National Conveyancing Week, estate agents, mortgage brokers and introducers, and the home-moving public will be taking part in a series of in-person events, and online and on-demand sessions to better understand the role of property lawyers in the home moving process. 

Founder of National Conveyancing Week Rob Hailstone says:
“Home buying and selling is one of the most important events that takes place in the lives of nearly everyone at some point in time.  It can be time consuming and difficult to understand for many. National Conveyancing Week has aimed to help de-mystify the many strands that make up the process, not just for the general public but also for the numerous stakeholders involved in it.”

Mel Nicholson, Managing Director for MOL and Total People supports National Conveyancing Week: “Being a licensed conveyancer is an interesting and dynamic job, with many different legal aspects to learn, as well as getting to grips with shifting market trends. There are many ways to acquire the qualifications to become a licensed conveyancer, including our online courses and apprenticeships. Many of our learners have the choice to combine flexible learning opportunities whilst working and, for some, having a family, which provides the opportunity to increase their future earnings potential. National Conveyancing Week is the ideal time to focus on a growing market that offers opportunities for those looking for a change in career or who are wanting to progress and upskill in their current role.”
